Someones back yard.

I'm the worst when it comes to painting any kind of landscape and gardens, but if someone recognizes this as their back yard I'll send it to you..   BJ

A Piece of Heart !

Today I received this  piece of art  from Jerry ,a  blogger  and friend who lives in the state of Oregon and is an absolute master when it comes to metal art.. His main work is gates, arbors, railings and such, but they are each a piece of  unique art like I've never seen.. And  the best part he recycles all this 'stuff' from found objects.. Welds them together , does some other magic to them and it turns out to be something wonderful...  This particular one is copper, a rose and butterfly and on his blog he explains  the why of each element under his March 25th post..    
    This gift  was not a total surprise as he had blogged about it a few days ago. Through the years I've had many artists send me their work,  either we've  exchanged or  I've bought , or they just send a part of themselves . I've done the same in return.  I love each and every one and this is one I will treasure because it comes from a very special, caring person. Thank you Jerry.. ever so much..
