Faces of Lincoln County, New Mexico

I’m facing a challenge this month. I am creating new art for submission to the Art in Public Places project at the Ruidoso Convention Center. In order to get geared up and inspired, I’ve decided to sculpt in fired ceramics( for durability) the faces of the people who live in our beautiful mountains of Lincoln County.   At first, I thought the obvious, Billy the Kid, but I am going to portray the “real” folks, not the legends
So my mission this week will be to compile images and photos of our residents as reference for the sculptures.  I need pictures of ranchers, Native Americans, cowboys, faces that can portray the essence of our multi cultures. Let’s see how many faces of New Mexicans I can collect. Wish I was going to Santa Fe for Indian market.
