We may think of folk art as quaint or cute, but his art is amazing and on a grand scale. The house, the out building and a yard full of sculpture, all to explore. The house was closed so we did not go inside on this trip, but the outside is wonderous.
This is not the house. It’s just an outbuilding.

Not just an elephant. It is political commentary.

OOOOooooo, maybe I should save this for Halloween, but I am going to use it anyhow.
For Mundane Monday #177, the theme is a photograph of something creature built.
We were leaving in the early morning and P nearly walked into this web. Then we both stopped and took photographs. It’s hard to capture the web in focus!

Link your photograph or send a message and I will list it next week.

And prayers for those in the storm’s way and flooding.
Two weeks ago I was visiting family in Dodgeville, Wisconsin. This is an art installation in town and the multitude of doors made me think of Thursday doors! Hoods, too. What day would we choose for hoods? I am afraid that many of the hoods I think of are grim, but these hoods are fine…
