rock artWith seven inches of rain forecast, this morning, I took the pups, and paddled the kayaks down to the park to load 'em into the truck and move to higher ground.

I was mezmerrized by this rock art sculpture that was just sitting there in the creek.  Really amazing.  I totally appreciate this "work of art".

But why?  I'm not sure.  Maybe it's that it's so natural.  This organic medium came from the creek, is sitting in the creek.  Maybe it's the impermenance of the sculpture.  Maybe it's that i have no iinformation about the artist, to cloud my judgement.  No knowledge of their previous work, or notoriety, or lack of. 

With all the rain that will probably arrive overnight, it will surely be in a modified form tomorrow.  Or maybe it will survive, for a while.  Or maybe it's that it is made for people (paddlers) to appreciate (I'm guessing here) but as far as I can tell, the artist won't be receiving any recognition.  But then, maybe they will from this blog.

If you art the artis of this beautiful Cypress Creek sculpture, I'm interested to know who you are.  My guess is that you are around 12 years old.  Your parents allowed you to build this while they drank another beer on your paddle down the creek.  Or maybe it was a famous artist or musician in town recording another top ten.
