I will conclude the tour of this past month's trek around the local Botanical Gardens with a showing of a conglomerate of scrap art that has been on exhibit for a few months. The artist is known as Scrap Daddy. He hails from Houston Texas. And, his art has been shown all over the world. In my opinion, his work is extraordinarily unique, a bit bizarre, yet....so very interesting and a bit on the phenomenal side of thinking here; just viewing his work and then thinking of all the man hours put into his creations!!! I took several photos. Who am I kidding? I took WAY TOO MANY! But the only excuse I have is that they were all so interesting. So, this post will take some time to load. Have patience. I've made the majority of them very small in size to take into consideration for loading time. If you see one that really piques your interest, y'all can enlarge the photos by clicking on the image. Ready? Here goes....
I will begin with one that just blew me away! For the most part this work of art was forks and spoons! Yes, you read that right...forks and spoons!!! And, as you can see, it's mobile [motorized]. It can be driven.
...another one of my favorites, is Hair Brained! [the title of the piece]
...walking the dog:
...with the front end of the 'bike' seen above [the last image]
...standing about 15 feet tall, here's another one that I thought exceptional:
...and last one if you're still with me on this:
teeth and eyeball
Throughout the grounds there were much much more. I'd probably still be there taking photos if I chose to get 'em all. It was an amazing feature and I'm glad we decided to take a tour around the perimeter. I also read on the Botanical Gardens' website [their PDF File] that transporting these works of art entailed two semi trucks, several small covered moving vans, a fork lift, and many many daylight hours setting this display/exhibit up for the season.
