art is where you find it

Remember the blue cross on the tree from this post? Here is the same tree today:

Quite a change, huh?

If you look closely (at the tree, maybe not in the picture), you can still the vestige of the blue cross.

I wonder if the chain saw art world has the same struggles we in the art quilt world do? Wanting acceptance by the 'art world'. Finding like minded individuals. Fighting the chain art police rules? We get so wrapped up in our own struggles that we forget that others have similar struggles, and somewhere this weekend there's a big chain saw art convention....

For another object of art, here's a picture I took this morning near my house:

This is the fallen blossom of a mimosa tree--a very cool looking tree that was quite popular when I was young. I took pictures of this one because I don't know if they grow around my new home in Batavia, and my grandmother had one. They don't look real somehow, more like a Chinese painting come to life.

So while I continue to not make art, I continue to think about making art. That's worth something, right?

I love Mimosa trees we have a lot of them around here. I am still trying to get some volunteers to come up although they are considered a weed to many I don't care I think they'd be a lovely addition to my woods.
