Garden Art: Dina Weiss’s Picket Fence

picketfence-detail
I’m hard to please when it comes to garden art.  Though not an art critic (I wouldn’t even begin to pretend I know enough about art to think I could reasonably critique) – I have strong opinions.

Art should feel imaginative and expressive.  I’m pretty sure it can’t be bought on a website…because to be right, I think it needs to be more personal than achievable through a retail outlet.  To me, the best garden art isn’t trying too hard, it makes me think, and it always surprising enough to make me smile.

Dina Weiss’s city-scape picket fence works perfectly for me….for sentimental reasons, I want one with a Denver skyline (sans mountains — because don’t you think that would teeter off the cheesy end of the art scale?).

I’m curious, what sort of rules do you follow when judging garden art?
