The boys and I had a picnic in the most awesome piece of art today! An artist named Patrick Dougherty creates installations made from sticks around the country and he happened to build one right near our house, on the property of St. Johns University.
Made entirely by the bending and shaping of twigs and branches, this permanent structure is one fabulous work of art. It's very "Seussical" yet elegant, it blends-in yet stands-out. Click HERE to learn more about the Stickworks project.
Let's just say that this sculpture captured our attention for the better part of two hours (thank goodness we had friends along). About the time we were ready to leave the key fob for the van stopped working. Not to take away from the splendor of a happy boy-meets-stick-house story, just tack on an additional two hours, two breast-feeding mamas (parked in lawn chairs next to said stick house), a diaper bag stuck inside the van and several frantic text messages to Dad requesting a rescue.
Just as I was starting to wonder what the sunset would look like over Patrick's stick vision, my knight arrived. Overall, not a bad place to be stranded, not a bad day to be forced to enjoy.
