“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

<><><>



There are so many forms of 'art'. Sculpture, paintings, Native American sand art, entertainment [even advertisements], photography---you name it, if it opens your mind through visual enhancment and growth, I personally believe it's art! And, I know I'm going to have such a great time viewing and visiting others this weekend....as I love all kinds of art. It's gonna be like taking a sitting tour of the world,--------all through the eyes of children, grown-ups and their views of a wonderful subject!!

Here are some things I have for this week's theme - all seafaring and my hubby's love of mermaids and my dolphin 'fetish' :o) .
Have a great weekend everybody!!




The golden mermaid and her golden dolphins sculpture




Lighthouse watercolor painting




Dolphin print





Blown glass dolphin

For this week---some terrific Mural Art here
