Crayon Garden Sculpture, Lubbock, Texas

crayon garden art sculpture

While I find this to be stunningly beautiful as a piece of art, I can’t help but wonder about the practicality of this particular landscape installation.  Using thousands of large crayons, artist Herb Williams created a field of sculpture flames for Unwanted Visitor: Portrait of Wildfire at the National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, Texas.  My concern….will these not melt in the hot Texas sun?  Perhaps it is only temporary, it would certainly be a fantastic permanent display.

  1. I believe that that is part of the plan for the sculptures–the heat causing an ever-changing work of art. Very cool.

  2. Hey,

    Love the blog, you def have a new follower.

    I was wondering if you knew what kind of plants are good for heavily shaded gardens? we have a tiny tiny city garden, but it is surrounded by big oak trees which i suspect are sucking the life out of everything, couple that with it not getting an ounce of sun and me being a complete novice, i’ve no idea what to plant in there, everything from last year died.

    thanks for your help!!

Before & After: Sue’s Finnish Rainbow Garden

When I first found this makeover I assumed it was a garden located somewhere in the middle of America.  It just looks so familiar to me that I was surprised to discover that Sue and her garden are actually in Finland!  This is, I think, Studio ‘g’s  first Finnish Garden. My favorite part is the…

Save a tree, Last minute christmas tree alternatives.

All the good trees are probably sold and, for what is left of the season, maybe it would be better to save a tree and get a last minute tree alternative. I showed this to my husband and he thought it would be a great way for me to use some of the piles of…

Before & After: Traci’s Patio

Have you ever gone a series of days being one day off.  Yep, I lost a day somewhere this week.  To me, yesterday was Wednesday, and the day before was Tuesday, so imagine my surprise when I realized that today is actually Friday.  Thursday is just gone I guess.  All the well since I only…
