Impromptu Art For A Monday

Back in early October, I was doing some survey work to see just how things were progressing in the cleanup of the aftermath of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.  At one of the local campgrounds, someone mentioned this – it had been left by some campers – and it’s just a remarkable little bit of impromptu artwork – a minature “camp in the woods.”  Enjoy!

Pretty, isn’t it? Someone did all of this – the actual size is about ❤ feet from end-to-end, and did a wonderful job of building a “woodland camp” in miniature, including fencing. It’ll be gone next spring, but I appreciate the skill that went into it, and thought I should let people see it.

    Beautiful, Norbrook. Thank you for posting this. I hope you have it a lot easier with the weather this year.

  2. The ability of human beings to think freshly about commonplace things, and to use simple materials creatively, is one of the elements in the world that continues to keep me hopeful.

  3. That is so cool!!! Thanks for sharing that. I can just imagine some miniature people enjoying that encampment. What an inventive mind of the person who created this.
