  1. I like the art.
    Delightfully chilly?
    Sigh, I miss that - though there will be some here as Autumn sets in - it won't be New York Golden October!

  3. I love these sculptures! Don't you love it when people take a chance on experimental art? I do. About 20 yrs ago my then husband and I opened a seafood restaurant in the resort town of Whistler and I wanted a sculpture for the front. I contacted the Emily Carr school of art and offered a student the chance to make me a 5' by 7' rusty iron crab. (for money of course, but not as much as I would pay an established artist) Win win of it was I got my art and he got his name out there with a major installation in front of a major restaurant. I did that for three more artists with other pieces. :)
