Sculpture Saturday: Painted Rock

Standard

I know I’m pushing the definition of sculpture with this one, but it gives me a chance to post one of my favorite pictures of my husband, Greg, taken eight years ago during one of my favorite vacations ever.

I made my husband pose next to this painted rock outside the Waikiki Aquarium.

Sculpture Saturday: Statuary and Such

Standard

These photos were taken in June 2018 on the grounds of the Breath of Life Retreat House in Pine, Arizona. The property has a new owner now; I’m not sure if these statues are there anymore. (Click on images to enlarge.)

Sculpture Saturday: Map of Tempe

Standard

IMG_1172

This sculpture stands outside the public library and represents a map of our town. It’s a little too abstract for me. I think the roundish stacked structure toward the top left is the stadium at Arizona State University, which would make the long flat area behind it the Salt River. I’ve wasted many minutes here trying to find my neighborhood; I’ve never succeeded.
