On this interesting property tour, I've saved the Time Machine for last. The artist offers the time traveler four choices: 1/Return to your youth but know what you know now; 2/Return to your youth; when you come back you won't know now what you didn't know then; 3/Stay present in the present; and 4/Go forward to your old age; when you come back you probably won't remember much.
I really like this fish/shark/dolphin sculpture. In the background you can see a few of the other pieces created by this artist. And do scroll back for a few days to see even more of this artist's work.
Continuing on my exploratory journey of this amazing property, I discovered this.... Sled Chair? Perhaps rocket propelled? With saddle bags for storage.... Can't imagine the horse shoes offer much comfort while seated but maybe you don't notice that if you get up enough speed. Hmm. Definitely interesting!
I happened upon a wild pasture filled with sculptures (and a boat in a tree - see yesterday's post) and photographed many of the whimsical and fun pieces. One of the site followers (thanks, Ellen!) posted an article that appeared in the AZ Daily Star about this veterinarian-turned-blacksmith. I had missed the article and if you'd like to read more about this interesting artist, click here.
We did have some rain over the weekend but not quite enough to launch THIS boat! I was tempted to use this wacky image as one of the "Where is this?" contest entries. I doubt if even Ellen or Kathy would know where I saw this!
The familiar javelina (actually a peccary, not a "pig") is usually an unwelcome visitor because he/she brings the entire family with them and eats the flowers and vines you have in your yard. But this metal sculpture standing guard (definitely life size) might even deter the herd. And what about that nearby cat? There was also a big metal lizard decorating the front but I couldn't capture all 3 in one shot.
Yes, you CAN believe your eyes. This car is sporting enviably LONG LASHES. And they are not painted on - they are 3-D! WOW! What fun to dress your car up with glamorous lashes like these! Photo courtesy Carol Smith

I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
