You know how you get in the car, hook your seat belt and away you go to your destination. And you watch traffic and stop at all the stop lights and signs. And you are thinking of what you need to get, do, and or what's for supper. All the while you really don't notice the things around you.
Evidently, that is what I have done.. for days now. I was bringing one of my grand girls home with me this afternoon and she saw this! About a block down the street from my house! We just had to take a picture. She and I were both amazed. Now there are 3 children in that house, 2 boys and a girl, none of whom are beyond grade school yet. So one or all are quite the artist!
When we saw this snow elephant, it reminded me of a blogger a while back that posted about being at an ice sculpture show and contest. If I could remember who, I would gladly give them credit(the memory is going!), but I can't. The sculptures were truly beautiful and took at lot of skill. But age for age I think our local artist did a remarkable job!
I would never have thought to try something like this...all I've ever attempted was a snow man using 3 graduated -slightly-out-of -round balls of snow. So I congratulate the inventiveness, the originality and the imagination of the artist(s)!!
And by the way.. take some time to observe what is around you!
