Sculpture on the block

©2014 Barry Smith - Nature's installation in one of my pieces
Over the weekend Fiona and I moved the organ into place down between the Mango trees; and moved a bit of our 3D pieces around the block; or just cleared the area so one could now see them more clearly.

I took photos of the pieces at dawn today - soft light - a hint of darkness still.

Some of the pieces are shown below.

  1. Great collection!! The foil flowers have a relationship to the leaves that you just sold... love the multiples that seem to sway in the wind.

  2. That organ is perfectly placed. Your garden is evolving most interestingly.

  3. Just simply lovely Barry. What a delightful and soul soothing sculpture garden you've got. And that view! Left me breathless.

  4. B, the organ placement is perfect! Your garden sculptures look wonderful and I have serious envy every time I see the iris.

  5. how wonderful it is to be living amongst and creating art ... a dream home ...

  6. VA, JM, J, C & LT - just as some folk say they are catching up on posts - so IO say I'm catching tip on published comments. Thank you for them - it is a very positive way of knowing that the posts are being shared with our art community. VA - you are right in your assessment of one of the inspirations for the bending leaves. This morning I saw that some of the foil handles had water in them. Small bird drinking bowls maybe. JM & C - thanks re the placement of the organ. I still have not had time to add to it yet. J - thanks - as you will experience one day it is a pretty restful place. LT - we know we are really fortunate - we don't take it fore granted as we know many folk don't have the abundance we have. But as I have said before - we are happy to share with visiting fellow artists. All - go well. B
