Art

We went to Leesburg, VA today to do some shopping. Leesburg is a very cool place, and we drive through some very pretty country settings (and huge estates!) along the way. We always pass this one horse statue, and I finally remembered the camera and got a pic:
We've spotted a number of painted animals in our short time here in Maryland. This fish was found at a shop in Baltimore:And these guys were found scattered around the Inner Harbor area:When we were in Minneapolis, they had painted Snoopy statues all around. In Des Moines, we saw painted pigs. I wish I had the talent to paint something like this.

nice! the first time i encountered these types of statues were in nyc right around 1999 i think. at the time, there were COWS all over the city sponsored by various, corporations, fashion houses, and famous artists themselves.

ut oh. I hope Cincinnati folks don't find out about Des Moines! Cincinnati thinks they have the lock on painted pigs. But...Chicago stole the cow idea from NYC (I think) so all's fair in love, war and public art!
