You will notice that there are NO power tools anywhere is sight of this local artisan. Just a hand axe, a pencil and some blocks of wood. What is he making you ask.
He is making these beautiful wood bowls. Obviously, there are no two alike. You just have to appreciate this kind of creativity and craftsmanship.
When viewed from a distance, there are three of these handrails on the steps of the local County Courthouse. They are pretty unassuming. But, when you focus you attention on a single section and crop out the clutter, I think they provide a most interesting pattern. I guess that's just the architect coming out in me.
This happy fellow would love to be unleashed to go meet and greet everyone at the Farmers Market.
This guardian of the square is somewhat unapproachable. He's twenty feet off of the ground and in the middle of a fountain. Yes, Arkansas was a Confederate state during the Civil War and this soldier is a monument to those who fought and died during that conflict. Brave men fought and died on both sides of the war and the fact that the ideals of the Confederacy are in conflict with our society, it does not diminish the courage that these men displayed.
On any given Saturday morning there will be one or several street musicians at the Farmers Market. What better way to practice your music and become accustomed to playing for an audience? This young lady was unaware of my presence at this moment. A few seconds later...
I was busted. It was a good morning at the market. I picked up some home grown tomatoes before I left. Have a blessed day.
