“Concrete Butterfly”
Full of colorful bits from yesterday, trashy rough edges cracked to define her purpose, exposed wings and deep pockets of truth. She faces the light and knows her direction. She’s taking it all with her, because even concrete butterflies can fly.

New Bonnie Chapa Art: Brave

“Brave” © Bonnie Feaster Chapa
Created from an original photo Bonnie Feaster Chapa took in Panama City Beach, Florida Summer of 2015.

There he was, flaming red hair, standing looking out over the huge ocean – brave.
All the things in the world bigger than him and he’s ready to conquer it all.  I saw him and instantly knew the name of this piece and thought of this quote by Mark Twain,  “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Find your unique brilliance, dream big and be BRAVE.

Created from an original photo Bonnie Feaster Chapa took in Troy, Texas. (In her sister’s bathroom of a tailgate!  Yes, believe it or not)  🙂

In my sister’s bathroom at her house, she has a tailgate of a Scout truck hanging on the wall.  I would always see the little swirly squiggly scratch over to the right side on the tailgate and would think of dirt devils rolling across West Texas.  Then one day it hit me to take a picture of it and see what I could come up with.  Many many months went by….then, finally…..

The rusted out area at the bottom of the tailgate reminded me of a cactus filled fence line in West Texas.  Behind that fence in the background there is a ghost town and mountains…..those mountains are the only thing left with the cactus and that dirt devil rolling across the big empty space after the boom and bust of the West Texas oil fields.

Some see it and some don’t, but I promise you, it is there!

New Bonnie Chapa Art: City Cafe

Created and reworked January 2015 from an original photo Bonnie Feaster Chapa took in Troy, Texas, December 7, 2013.

I love architecture, old signs, historic downtown streets, Texas and good food that rolls a little bit of all of the above together with beer and a street dance.  Retro grit.  Good stuff.  This just seemed to me like all that and more, minus the beer, food and a street dance.  It was just me and an old cat on the curb this day.

I saw this sign with a quick glance driving through Hearne on the way to College Station and spent at least an hour on this street getting so much good stuff.  Maybe I was thinking of artist, Rodney White when I was doing this, because I love him and his art too!  I think he needs to come to Texas and we can go Ridin On The Right Side.  🙂
