Bluff View Art District

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love the Tennessee Riverpark. I look forward to the weekends when I usually take a long bicycle ride from the Chickamauga Dam to either Coolidge Park or Renaissance Park. One of the highlights of the Riverpark trail is the River Gallery Sculpture Garden at the Bluff View Art District. While there are some sculptures that I think are permanent many are sometimes exchanged so that there are new works of art to view at different times of the year. Below are a few pictures that I have taken over the past few years. One of my favorites is the Walking Figure by Russell Whiting which can be found on the deck of the building which houses the Bluff View Bakery. The middle photo is of a work called Wood Muses I-IV which was only recently installed. The bottom photo is a piece called Amazon Walking which has been removed since the photo was taken.

This is my sister Janet's Flickr page. She's a really good artist. Not a bad photographer either!

The blog's a bit stale

I just realized that I had not looked at my blog in quite a while. I was really surprised to see that it's been almost a year. Now I really should decide what to do with it. Mothball it? Freshen it up? Hmm...I have to think on this a bit.

Shift in the cosmos

I feel a disturbance in the force. Something's happening, don't know what. More later!

For some reason I always thought that it would be better than this.
