The Story:

This  image played a large role  in my  receiving the Master Artist degree from PPA in early 2017.  It's a composite of perhaps forty photographs, including individual photos of each cross.     The model is Bill Dimmitt, a balloon pilot and cowboy.   The primary, front section of the piece was photographed on Bill's property in Las Lunas, New Mexcio.   The title, I must confess, was adapted from "Mr. Bo Jangles", written by Jerry Jeff Walker.          Referring to Bo Jangles' dog, the songs says "After Twenty Years he Still Grieves".        I was  always very taken by that line, and it was the inspiration for this composite photograph.    So as not to copy the phrase exactly, I changed it to "thirty years" for this piece.
