There is no shortage of opportunity to look at art in Houston. On most days, one can wander among any number of galleries, museums and studios.
It is particularly fun to visit studio spaces where artists create in a stimulating environment. Ideas are shared and sometimes collaborative effort evolves.
My eye is always drawn to those things made with objects many of us would have thrown away. These made me think maybe the hubby’s old shoe trees shouldn’t have gone to the trash bin.
Talk about repurposing. Who would have thought an abandoned skateboard would serve as a canvas?
The same question could be asked of this sculptural piece made from old and new chain. I could easily imagine owning this as I’m attracted to the unusual.
Having said that, I have no idea how this creation could be used anywhere other than as an installation piece in an exhibit.
Kids were fascinated, however, and stood watching the artist and asking questions. I marveled at his patience and wondered what inspired him to work in this medium.
Not all art is serious which is what makes it fun. I had to take a second look to be sure I wasn’t about to stumble over someone’s leg!
Photography is one of my passions, so it is always interesting to observe what others see through their lens. As I look, it dawns on me that anything can be subject for a photo. What one has to learn is to see.
Never let it be said that there isn’t time for enjoying the moment. I snapped this fella unbeknownst to him and he must have been having a very pleasant thought. Certainly, there is evidence that creativity and a sense of humor go together.
