This series has roots in Albuquerque’s Hot Air Balloon Fest and in the art life surrounding Santa Fe. Both places are adobe colored and the shift to black and white here shows off the lines and shapes underneath the landscapes and the architecture.
Also, Americans first met the New Mexico landscape in old, black & white movies. John Wayne roamed the Monument Valley near Gallup in a pure frontier world. Director John Ford returned to New Mexico often and the image of the West in black and white was permanently fixed in the minds of several generations. Black and white sharpens all the survival lines those fantasy cowboys straddled.
There is a colorful butterfly and two with highways and that’s a start. Mostly, I’m just afraid my colors could never compete with Georgia O’Keeffe.

In creating Starkey Cards, I learned about business plans, business models, and mission statements. But the truth is I focused on the paper. Rich, thick paper makes my images look like the woodcut prints I once designed.
I wanted our notecards to be American made and renewable and unique in shape and acid free.
- The card stock, envelopes, and business cards are all American made and hail from California, the Carolinas, and Rhode Island.
- The card stock is heavy. It weighs 220 grams per square meter. That’s a lot.
- All the paper is 100% renewable cotton. The business cards are made from old t-Shirts.
- The protective sheaths are biodegradable.
- SQUARE notecards are 5 & 1/4 x 5 & 1/4 inches.
- RECTANGLE notecards are 5 & 7/8 x 4 & 9/16 inches.
- The card stock is archival and acid free. The notecards are done on museum quality paper that will last. The images will endure. You could frame them.
