 My partner, artist Richard Kurtz and I visited Josie Adams and her man Shawn Green in their New Mexico home and Josie’s studio last Sunday.

We first sat down and ate a great salad and tamales with peach salsaShawn played us some good music as we all laughed and talked.

We then spent time in Josie’s sun filled studio.

She showed us her work & talked about how loving & helpful Shawn is to her and her art making process. They are a beautiful couple with a great romantic story. 

Josie has a real brightness about her & a huge smile.

Her home and her paintings reflect her kind spirit.

On Josie Adams’  Facebook public figure page she describes herself as an  

avid painter, mom, partner, rollerblader, motorcycle maniac and

trampoline trickster.

She lists her interests as ~

 Sharing nature and all it’s bounty with family and friends.

Jumping toy cars on my super rasta Honda XR100 motorcycle.

Reviving the fine art of nocturnal urban rollerblading.

Skating vert ramps in remote desert locations.

In other words Josie is super fun!
