Tile Art In Silver City, N.M.

As careful readers of this blog may have noted,
 I have posted on tile mosaic, murals, and manufacturers in Silver City, New Mexico,
 as well as the artists who practice such work.

For such a small town there is a lot of ceramic art.

Above, is a small work that we noticed 
walking around a residential area in the historic part of town.

Although it is small and at the bottom of a wall
it jumped out at us.

Leonard Knight's Salvation Mountain In Niland, California

One of the more amazing places we have been over the years is Salvation Mountain
built by Leonard Knight not far from the south eastern shore of the Salton Sea
just outside the town of Niland, California.

Allison had been wanting to go there for quite a while 
and this winter we had the opportunity to see this part of the world,
and she provided the photos for this post.
