Speechless Sunday art comes in many forms




Art sure comes in many forms.  This particular piece was made from chainlinks in mult-colors.  The ground was the the canvas which at the time seemed like a great idea.

The artist should have made sure the canvas was ready for the masterpiece by applying material to block weed and grass.

By the time I saw the masterpiece it was obvious some steps were not taken because grass had practically covered the piece of work.

At first glance, I was certain it was vegetables placed on the ground.  The orange ones look like carrots to me.  I have to agree with Emily - That is the best use of chain link, I've ever seen!

Jennifer, art DOES come in different forms, and this is quite interesting.   One would think chain link being metal could get too warm, and burn the grass.

Jennifer, this is pretty cool stuff!  Artists can find canvas almost everywhere.  I have some clients who made their home look like a Mondrian had stopped by for a visit.  It was a contemporary and fits right into the neighborhood.  Your photos are another example of innovative creativity.

Jennifer that was very cleaver but maybe a little more forward thinking was in order :)

Very interesting.  I like the idea and with the different colors it looks great!  I thought it was veggies at first too!
