Go For a Walk: Focus on Life Week 16



The week 16 prompt for Focus on Life was 'go for a walk'

I decided to take a jaunt downtown to the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden in Little Rock and show you a few sculptures. I was a bad tourist though and did  not take notes on the sculptor or the title of the works. Here are a few of my faves.










Actually, a lot of these photos are of the same piece. There's just something about the texture, the color the swirls and overall shape that I find irresistible.
 

To see where others were walking, start here.

How nice to have something like that close by.

Oh my that last one focused on the tree... divine! I love sculpture outdoors and would love to incorporate some in my own yard.

Paula, Chief Bead Officer said...

Ya, I agree with Janet. That last photo is terrific the way the stone creates a frame for the tree. Excellent photos!

Lynne, since you came some of the sculptures had pieces of them stolen. Glad y'all liked the tree frame!
