One of the coolest pieces of art in my neighborhood is this handmade bench above, with Peaches. It’s about a mile from my house on someone’s property and near the road. Passerbys can’t miss it, and I didn’t during a summer stroll with Peaches.
There’s a great deal of art out in the open and easy to see as one walks or drives around on the east (or “desert side”) of Bend. Some folks use ancient farming implements to decorate their properties, like this rake at my neighbor’s home.
Here’s another bench, a homemade folk art belonging to the memory care facility where my elder sister resides. It invites folks to sit and reflect, and visitors accompanied by their resident relatives often take advantage of it.
These photos were taken in summertime, and now, another season of sunlight is on its way. Starting today, I’ll be out with a camera to capture more local art. I’ll be seeking signs of the snow finally, really disappearing, and allowing the beauty beneath to sprout again.
Dear Readers, Have a great day. Diana
