Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

He said, “Figuring out what I want to do next.”
Just an artist with a louder paintbrush, he says.
Definitely too loud for a baby!
Such an adorable tot.
You’ll knot escape the watchful gaze of a mama bear.
“X” marks the spot for the tail, and the end of this photo tale.

I was so excited to be able to take photos of this artist

creating this sculpture as a promotion

for the 50th anniversary of our hardware store.

Imagine my shock-surprise toย find the Photo Challenge: Create!

Sometimes it helps to be somewhere, anywhere;

then you end up in the right place at the right time.

  1. Loved what he created – and it will bring lots of admiration to the place where it is positioned. Thanks to both you and the artist for sharing this with us.

    1. Ah, Colline! So glad to see you here! ๐Ÿ™‚ And such an encouraging comment! Thanks! He was only half finished and I HAD to leave. He said he will add even “fur”. It should be an awesome piece. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hello, Fergie, and welcome to Home’s Cool!
      Yes, they say he IS super-talented. He says he’s been doing this for 25 years, half his life!
      He also said his first sculpture was a mushroom, and a very poor one, at that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. That is pretty darn cool. I couldnt help but think….I saw Madagascar 3 with my daughter last night and the relationship between King Julian and the circus bear was so hilariously sicko…I will never be able to look at a bear (even a wooden one) again the same.

  3. Was this near where you live? Very nice. Guess he just carved off everything that did not look like a bear.

    1. Hello, Star! Thanks for these kind words, and WELCOME to Home’s Cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

      It was an eerie feeling, sort of KNOWING I would need these photos. Doesn’t happen often. God bless you, too, and come back soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
