Who knew that a dozen painters could make so much noise!!!

Great job kids.  The windows look great!   And thanks Town of Front Royal for giving these kids such a public place to show off their art.

Horses at HHI 1 Horses at HHI 2We enjoyed a relaxing day yesterday biking around and stopping to see some amazing art. These horse sculptures just stand out in an open space by the marsh. I couldn’t find anything nearby who said who created them so I Googled it when I got back to the house.  Here is what I found:

“These unique horse sculptures are a part of Hilton Head Island’s growing art collection.  May 1st they were placed on a parcel of town-owned property beside William Hilton Head Parkway near mid-island.  The sculptures are by Jonathan Bowling of Greenville, NC and are made from repurposed steel. Previously they were on display at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn on the north end of the island.”

I have been wanting to learn to weld so this makes me want to even more!
