Mobile (Fine) Art

Happy Monday everyone! If you sense false cheer in that statement, you might be right. Here's my weekend recap in a nutshell:
-DIY chairs, almost done. They're in need of final coat of sealant. Pictures to come.
-B got into a bike wreck. Bad news is his beautiful vintage bike that he worked so hard on is dead; good news is he is not (dead, that is.)
-I received another flat tire yesterday, this time in route to see B's mom. Not good. I'm beginning to think this is bad luck...three flat tires from nails in the past three months. What's up with that?
Anyway, on my last hanging mobile post, the very sweet Samantha from Bromeliad Living, left me a link on some pretty interesting hanging mobiles I'd like to share with you.
These pieces are actual sculptures from the artist Robin M Jordan and I think they're brilliant.
'War Prayers'
'Waterbottle Rain'
'Raindrops'
'Leaves'

3-d work was never my strength in school so I'm always impressed when I find pieces that manage to convey such strong presence, especially with the use of mixed media and found objects. I would definitely hang the 'Leaves' mobile in my home, fine art or not.
Thank you Samantha for the link!

What a terrible weekend! I hope everybody is well, and thanks, as always, for the lovely pics. I adore mobiles myself, and have made a few (or, tried to . . .)

Sorry about the bad weekend... the bike thing sounds scary but that's good that he's ok. Regarding the nails though, I have to tell you that a few years ago I had a similar problem and what I started to do was to check around where I would park my car to see if there were any loose nails before I took off and also I stopped using an alley shortcut I was fond of. Alley's and ditches are nail magnets. :)

Those mobiles are lovely, I've always wanted one but not sure where I would hang it?

I love the leaves one. And your mobile idea has me really searching for something for our bedroom... we have a pitiful little corner that needs some life!

I'll never look at a broken umbrella stuffed in a trash can the same way again.

Thanks for the link, too.
