I want to first thank Katie Pfeiffer who mentioned me in her blog www.katiepfeiffer.blogspot.com having seen and enjoyed my rock sculptures, but not even knowing who or why they were there. Until she wrote about me and showed photos of the sculptures, I thought of myself as just some rogue rock artist going out to enjoy some artistic expression. I actually thought no one was even noticing these creations, and was frankly pleased I hadn't been arrested yet. Katie is a true artist, very talented and well worth a visit to her site.
This morning was only supposed to be a visit to the Bala Cynwyd Library and a stop to drop off a couple of heavy base rocks for a future sculpture. However, the island at Montgomery Ave. & Old Lancaster Ave. is on the way. Last Autumn's sculpture had fallen down during the winter (of course). Since there is a large, expensive sign at the island saying that the Merion-Cynwyd Civic Assoc. takes care of the plot, I know my rocks would not be long there with Spring on the way. I couldn't leave with my rocks without trying to make the area look a little better than I found it. Thus, I used the Home Depot stock garden blocks topped by one of my rocks as a small effort toward making the place nicer till the civic assoc. gets their act together. Should that not happen, then they may find an even nicer sculpture in the locale, and I'll take over the gardening maintenance.
