Our Lady of Sorrows Mural Manzano, NM

by Bridget Harrington - Michael Moore March. 31, 2018 1580 views

Down the street from the Nuestra Senora de los Dolores church is this shed. The owner of the land it is on was very gracious and friendly and talked for a bit. He was about 80 and spry. This is the thing about exploring in remotish places: people like meeting you as much as vice versa. The land has been in his family for generations. The shed itself was a bar and also a store, but neither amounted to much because the area is so remote.

No traffic, no business. People who in Manzano go for groceries and gas in Mountainair or Socorro...20+ miles down the road.

The artist that is working on this has been doing so for almost 3 years, comes in from Albuquerque when he has time and is not finished yet. "I hope he never does finish. I like the company," the man said.
