Felting...no, studio shots...no, inspiration...Just Blog!

So many creative things to do, sooooo little time! And just when inspiration is the last thing I need, we went to the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill. It's such a great place to go. For two months in the fall, they feature sculptures from sculptors worldwide. Just to prove it, here is one of my very favorites called "Water, Wind and Fire" by Margarita Leon from Maracaibo, Venezuela. The 'elements' are prettily arranged in a pond full of lilies, frogs and tadpoles.
My husband and I had both cameras clicking while my mother kept saying, "oh, take one from this direction. Take this through the reeds...."


I'm a sucker for color and I love the creativeness of the cutouts and the add-ons.

More from the Garden later....
