I have had a crush on this girl for over a year. I first saw her at Behnke’s, our local nursery, and was caught off guard by her beauty.
But I resisted. I saw her again on occasional trips, seeming regal among the plants and a bit out of place; I would sigh and move along.
A year later, she was on sale. Just like that she was suddenly 50% off. I wondered why she had been cast off in this way. Unappreciated. It seemed cruel.
I love the mix of classical form and modern material. The glass creates an effervescent quality about her that makes her unique. She is not a traditional bust.
Now she has found her home. It is true art can be found anywhere if you keep your eyes open, even in the most unexpected places!
