Industrial modernist garden sculpture

This is a piece of garden art by a local artist Paul Owen.  His sculptures usually move in the wind and chime. On this one he did not have time to  add the swinging gong and I kinda like the simplicity. My kids always hit it with spoons anyway and it sounds great

oil spill oil painting

Oh my lord I am such a lazy blogger well not really we are knee deep in renovation - but I finally found I have a follower that is not a family member. How exciting. So here is some updating. I bought this oil refinery painting about 3 months ago it has turned out to be so apt. The photo really does not do it justice. It is less brigh and the painting almost looks like an oil pastel but you really cannot tell from this shot.
I promise to post again soon.
