Art on Our Street!

I photograph street art fairly frequently, but it's not often I find it on our street. Yesterday, though, on the way to Hyde Park with Olga, I discovered that someone converted a streetside tree stump into a chair.

Olga was intrigued.

But not intrigued enough to delay her trip to the park, where she had a great time chasing her Kong toy, rolling in the grass and enjoying the view of Kensington Palace.

Then, on the way home, we found more art -- a painting on canvas that had been rolled up, folded in half and put out with someone's trash. Curious to see what it looked like, I brought it home and unrolled it. Wouldn't you have done the same?

I kind of like it, but I'm not sure we'll keep it. How much would it cost to re-stretch the canvas and put it back on a frame? Probably more than I'd care to invest.

Oh, and Dave hates it. There is that.

Haha! Well, I don't understand art but those are nice colors. How's that for an in-depth critique?

Love the tree stump chair. I wonder if anyone uses it?

Actually, I kind of like your found piece of canvas but I am not an art critic.

You could put in at the school or donate it somewhere... and I love the tree stump chair, too. As for Olga, she is the Queen of the outdoors, isn't she?

You and Olga are such kindred spirits. She is so happy and curious in her life with you. She has such a grand personality!
