Crayon Garden Sculpture, Lubbock, Texas

While I find this to be stunningly beautiful as a piece of art, I can’t help but wonder about the practicality of this particular landscape installation.  Using thousands of large crayons, artist Herb Williams created a field of sculpture flames for Unwanted Visitor: Portrait of Wildfire at the National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, Texas.  My concern….will these not melt in the hot Texas sun?  Perhaps it is only temporary, it would certainly be a fantastic permanent display.

    thanks for your help!!

Wow…it is 9:59pm and I just got home from my last client meeting…it’s May and in the landscape business, it’s a busy time.  Are you in the industry?  Are you busy? Business here has shifted a bit….less big projects and more little projects.  I think I might actually like it better right now.  I have…

I know it can be hard to find 70 or so extra minutes in your day to sit and watch something that will get you really thinking.  But if you can find it….I implore you to watch this. In fact – you don’t really need to watch – just listen while you do something else….
