Art in the Garden

Featured Artist: Allison Armour

A garden can be a sanctuary, a visual and sensory delight, a source of food, a habitat for nature’s various creatures and birds, and a place to satisfactorily work on a hobby or passion. It’s also an appropriate place for art.

I recently read about Allison Armour and her award-winning work. I was immediately struck by the simple beauty and elegance of her pieces. The light-catching metal reflects and enhances the wonderful array of colors in a garden and the sky. The sphere fountain adds a soothing water feature to an already peaceful place.

Look at the mirror obelisk for more inspiration. It’s mirror surface reflects the flowers and sunlight while it’s pointed and sharp-edged shape offers a striking contrast to the softness of the plantings.

Here are additional photos of her spherical fountains and sculptures:

    I can not believe the amount of high quality content which exist on this site. The site is extremely attractive as well as draws people directly in, the posts tend to be terrific quality and are extremely professionally written. I have seen too many of these sites where it appears like they pay an 8-10 year old to undertake the writing – Not this place. Your site is easily the top which i have looked at in a longer while.
