Exploding Metal Party Girl
I really enjoy making discoveries of new artwork. Whether the piece is public art that I have passed a million times and not paid much attention to or some hidden and obscure creation that's not on display, the hunt and Eureka moment of discovery make it worthwhile. If I have never seen it before, such as many of the large handpainted murals that I have run across, it's like a piece of gold found in a creek bed. This sculpture, metal and other materials, is roughly 6-7 feet tall. There were two of them, almost identical, and both are standing in a side yard of what must surely be the artist's home and studio. I couldn't resist grabbing a few shots.
