Jump on, and let’s go.

The first is titled Tree Hugger by Brent Baggett. I think Brent had a sense of humor.

Speaking of humor. Wanna Race by Marla Ripperda

Undivided by Matt Devine shows standing together is the stongest way.

Color Keep by Zeke Raney and Elizabeth Farrell adds a bit of fantasy to the abode.

This is not a piece of art but something to do at the park.

Full Bloom by Jennifer Chenoweth as seen from underneith the work.

  4. Some amazing works of art. Thanks for Maroon 5 too. Amazing performers. As a side note, a friend just returned from watching Mick Jager and the Rolling Stones perform in Hyde Park. Imagine at almost 80 years old, he still has the moves.

    1. Both Bee Cave and Lakeway have art committees, so there is a lot of public art around.

    Art has a way of telling a story that gives us pause. How wonderful to have the display in your area! I particularly like the Ram, quite bewitching. Happy Sunday to you and yours, John.

    1. The photo was taken with the Ram in full sunlight. It gave it an alabaster like appearance. Thank you, Gwen.

  9. Another wonderful tour, John! The armadillo in sneakers and the Texas longhorn are my faves, though I was definitely intrigued by some of the other works, too. Thanks so much for sharing once again. I really look forward to stopping by here on Sundays to see what’s going on in your part of the world. 😀 ❤

    I love this sculpture tour. An armadillo wearing tennis shoes? Fang would love it. Now that I think about it, he might have had a hand in that menu. Great post. Hugs on the wing!

  17. Wow! Earth Mother really gets your attention. These are great, John. I like quite a few and I think I would enjoy walking around – maybe in the fall, when it’s a little cooler.

    It was a toss up between the Vegetable Falafel and the Chicken Fried Beef Tenderloin and Cream Gravy with Eggs, Tater Tot Hash. Falafel lost, but tell my wife it was close.

    1. I will let her know that had the Falafel not sold out that’s what you ordered and would have had. You had to settle for that nasty chicken fried tenderloin and tater tot hash.

    I play a little chess, and I’ve always wanted to try one of those large sets. What material are the pieces?. They have to be heavy enough not to blow ever but easy enough to move.

    1. I did not touch them. Next time I will. I don’t think they are plastic. If so they might be weighted.
