Old cast iron bathtubs are a common sight in yards in our county. Even old toilet bowls and tractor tires are sometimes filled with dirt and used as planters. There is often one or more cement pieces; the frogs under the umbrella, the duck with her ducklings, and the ubiquitous Snow White and the Dwarfs. We usually pass by these pieces of "art" without giving them a second glance.
But every now and then we come across something unique. Something really creative and fun. Such was the sight as we drove along the East Fork River and came upon an abandoned old truck by the roadside. Imagine our surprise to find a large (apparently cement) black bear in the driver's seat.
The bear keeps his eyes on the road.
A closer look showed a wild boar peeping out from under the front fender.
There seems a bit of wash problem from recent rains.
I must admit I love seeing roadside art. Some of it is tasteful but most of it is tacky. But keep in mind it's all in the eyes of the beholder after all.
As Albert Einstein said, "Art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist."
I often wonder exactly what creative urge led some folks to put so many things in their yards.
