     Colossal Avian Avatars flock to Muskegon

The Muskegon Museum of Art announced that Avian Avatars, 
an art installation of five colossal sculptures, each symbolizing a mythical bird,
designed by The Myth Makers, artists Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein, 
arrived in Muskegon on April 27, 2015.
The sculptures are crafted from
maple saplings, wire ties, and found objects,
and stand from 18 to 26 feet tall.
Each of the sculptures have been installed
in a different downtown Muskegon location for a full year,
from April 27, 2015 through May 1, 2016. 
Avian Avatars 
was formerly on display in the
Garment District of New York City
and the exhibit traveled directly to Muskegon during the week.
Information above was taken from
Muskegon Art Museum info plus

Photos were taken by me on May, 1, 2015
I enjoyed learning about the sculptures and seeing them in person.
The massive size of each sculpture and the artistic expression
with the weaving of  twigs and branches
plus the found items such as
plastic shopping bags, yellow caution tape, golf clubs
makes for exceptional sculpture.

How fortunate for our community
to have the
 Avian Avatar
exhibited here for the year.

and what a fun twist to Saturday's Critters.
Thanks Eileen for hosting

Some Blues For You . . .

we went on a hunt
to find the blue barn I had found
but couldn't remember exactly where I had found it
(ever have that happen to you)
it didn't take long
blue sky
blue barn
blue roof
blue outbuildings
blue tractor
blue house
although I didn't get that house photo
(we did pull in the driveway though)
notice the trees just beginning to blush out

 all that blue lives at
Whispering Willow Ranch
I wonder if they know they made my press . . .
the fence views were the reason for the hunt
all for you and
thanks for hosting Theresa
a huge thank you to my visitors
and for your very nice comments
I enjoy connecting with all of you.
Love, Lynne

Mellow Yellow . . .

I hope you noticed the snowflakes on the pachysandra
yes, snow squalls off and on happened around here this past week
then the gray stayed around for a few days
with sunshine happening for the weekend
still quite cool but bright sunny days make it almost perfect
 yellow flowers brings us some cheer 
forsythia  daffodils 
one lone frozen like yellow flower
and some yellowish cedar
things are waking up
beginning to pop
and I am the first to shout
Thank you for visiting, enjoy a sunny week.
Love, Lynne
