Pretend art and other things celebrating my weirdness, I mean uniqueness

Keeper of the Plains
On my way back from going a family meeting for my husband's guard unit in which I was the only one that showed up, I finally stopped and checked out something I have been driving by about twice a week, everytime saying "one of these days I'll go look at that". For you out-of-towners, I should say that they moved 44-foot statue by Blackbear Bosin for the proposed "Riverwalk" they are in the process of building. I am glad I looked at it, because from views from the roads around it, it looked like they morphed it by some weird arrow sculptures which I thought was disrespectful. I was happy to see that they are bridges. The stones around the sculpture to me look pretty fake, but it's still under construction so I hope it looks better when they finish in 20--? (Can you tell I don't read the paper that much?)
Did happen to meet a gentleman named Gary who was out trying to capture a picture of a bald eagle. He saw one earlier in the day. We don't usually have them here; they think it's because of the cold. He was kind enough to give me tips and even let me shoot his DSLR Nikon camera! Cool!

There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
