Fence Art

Every good artsy fence post deserves at least one tastefully, possibly delicious art in front of a fence photo, wouldn't you agree?



"Life is too short to stuff a mushroom."
Shirley Conrad






"Nature alone is antique,
and the oldest art a mushroom."
Thomas Carlyle



Yes, more little creatures growing beyond this one!


"You must grow like a tree
not like a mushroom."
Janet Erskine Stuart




(Did you notice other works of art in the reflection?)



Peace of Mind- Listening to the song of birds.



and burning their song into your heart.





This is the kind of art that grabs my attention most at any art show.

Is it a painting or, a photograph?


You tell me.







This last photo goes without question, definitely a watercolor painting. However, up close and as the light hits it just right, you can envision being there.





Thank you for stopping by and viewing more works of art from the Minnesota Fine Arts Building and also,
 an enormous thank you to my son for not mowing his lawn this week, so those little babes of nature could keep growing!.

Now on to see what you've all posted.  Have a HAPPY day.

The mushroom pictures are fantastic. I don't understand why your blog has fallen off my list (I have discovered I have several "hidden blogs" which I most certainly never hid!!! but I am glad to have found it again.

I'm impressed, especially by the watercolour. I like how it pulls me in, encourages me to dream.

Hello Karen, I think I would rather grow tall shape of a tree than the shape of a mushroom. The artwork is beautiful, I love the bird song image and the last three are wonderful.
Have a happy day! BTW, thank you for visiting my post.

I think it is a photograph as they have not straightened the horizon. I do not think an artist would deliberately make that on the slint. Love the last painting.

Christine said...

A wonderful array of art and fences and great close ups of the mushroom !

Paula said...

Nature IS an artwork.
And too much art is barely enough.

Great post. - Loved your mushroom shots growing by the fence. Wow there were some super artistic art pieces there with fences in them. That was fun to see.

Lois said...

I like seeing mushrooms, especially those tiny ones that pop up and look like little drink umbrellas! I'm going to guess and say that is a painting, but I really can't tell for sure.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I agree with your interpretation of art. I always enjoy your posts because they speak to me. I may not be able to produce visual arts, but I certainly appreciate them. Thank you.

Felicia said...
