WOW! It sure takes garden art to a whole new level! I'd love to make steel frames for garden art!

Calam, check out the link below to the Benini Sculpture Ranch; we went there yesterday. The garden art is kinetic, which I think means that it is so perfectly balanced that it moves constantly, even when there isn't any wind. There were many many examples of it outdoors all over the property and it was just beautiful, moving and twisting in the breeze. A wonderful place to visit.

Wow, thanks for showing this and the link. It's right up the road from me and I had heard about it, but had no idea it was that wonderful.

Wasn't it a bit hot out there yesterday?

RE: Monday morning inspiration for you

One of the great things about this place is that the gallery itself is air conditioned, and the rest of the place is viewed while inside your car! Miles of road loops around and the sculptures are installed on both sides of the road. There's little or no traffic and you can just stop in the road, roll down your window, and take pictures. It's a great road trip for August in Texas!
