I took a walk on the greenbelt and came across this bench. A few years ago a number of artists designed these benches for around the river. They have a rattlesnake, an appaloosa horse and some geese and a fish. Since I love ravens and crows so much you know this has to be my favorite.
From a distance they really look like real ravens. The problem is they are made out of thin metal. I figure some kid is going to break it off before long. I wanted pictures before that happened.
Here you can see where they put a mosaic on the bench to look like the birds shadow. I thought it was pretty cool. I was going to come back and take pictures of all the benches to add to this post but the weather has not been cooperating. We have rain forecast for the rest of the week so those pictures will have to wait.
Here is the journal page I did today. Sometimes the sadness of Japan just gets to me. I turn to art at those times and try to work my way through it and out to the light.
