This art was created because we, in New Mexico, are in the longest drought since the 1950’s. Our ranch is in the middle of the state just south of a dot in the road called Milagro – Miracle in Spanish. The movie – Milagro bean field war – could have been filmed on our ranch. It is very remote and you can still see the rows of beans in the fields next to the ruins of homestead houses from the 1800’s. The last drop is based on a photograph that I took of water dripping into a large cistern next to our grain bins. We have only had 7 inches of rain in the last few years here. We raise Mama Cows. This year we have 330 babies, but in a good rain year we could raise 500 calves. Rain and water from springs is a luxury. We are hoping that La Nina is leaving this year and El Nino is coming home.
