+Drue Hale   I remember seeing a little news story about Vivian Maier but that's all. I didn't know this film had been made. Thanks so much for the link. I just checked and it's not available on Netflix streaming so I ordered the DVD from the public library here.

The thrill is gone. Rest in peace, Mr. Blues Man.
.
The King of the Blues, B.B. King, died Thursday, May 14, at his home in Las Vegas after suffering from high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. He was 89 years old. King was one of the most influential blues musicians of all time. The 13-time Grammy Award winner played hundreds of live performances a year, spreading the blues across the nation, and the world.

New mixed media painting Prairie Morning, 16"x20".  I like the freedom of more abstraction,  but I miss the horizon line of a landscape, even an abstracted landscape. Lately I've been thinking about how deeply affected I was by growing up on the high plains prairie - Comanche territory.

Mongolian Folk Heavy Metal:  Tengger Calvary.
I've long been a fan of Mongolian traditional music, especially the horse hair fiddle tunes.  This contemporary heavy metal version is strangely engaging. Mongolian horse culture music updated moves from Nei Mongol in China to the West and fits into Texas, another horse culture, quite well. Scroll down for the video.
Okay...I'll admit it's pretty weird but some days are like that.
Listen to the stirring title track from Tengger Cavalry's new album, 'Blood Shaman Sacrifice.'

The May/June edition Sonoran Arts Network is now on the web....except for our Video feature which isn't quite ready yet. The painting you see here was created by the artist who will be featured in the video. Can you identify the artist?

The native people here, Tohono O'odham, watch and wait for the blossoms to turn into fruit. The fruit is red and juicy. They harvest the fruit and make a wine from it. They drink the wine as part of a yearly ceremonial rite of sacred song and dance. The sacred song and dance will bring the monsoon rains in July that keep the desert alive.  Thanks to +Desert Argonaut  for yet another very, very fine capture.

From the Tucson Sentinel, photo of a mountain lion moving along the top of the border fence at Naco, Arizona/Naco, Sonora (south of Bisbee, southeast of Tucson) - about 15-20 feet off the ground. Photo capture  by a Border Patrol agent. According to the Sentinel, "Officials didn't indicate which side of the border the mountain lion eventually leaped down on, or whether it was carrying documents."

I just loaned $25 to an artist named Toaganamua, a 24 year old woman who lives in Samoa. She runs a business selling elei printing and she'll use the loan to buy brushes, paint and more. Now I have to figure out what "elei printing" is. ?  Here's a little video about Kiva.  btw. this was a "roll over." I mean I didn't have to come up with $ 25. I just rolled over a repaid loan I had made previously. I've loaned the same $25 several times.
