Fieldwork – what a place of natural creation!

Scott Dobson's fencing is famous in Lanark County.
He built us a fence and, later due to tourists who  a gate.

me an appreciation of nature, beauty, art.
Fieldwork: land/art/exploration is hard to explain. You just have to view it.

You begin by pulling up to one of Scott Dobson's sheep fences.

Scott built us our front fence. Fencing in Lanark Country is interesting in that they couldn't dig down, and had to devise fences that would stand alone. There are about a dozen different styles.

A fence is a good barrier to the highway.
Later, he built our gate, when we found tourists driving in our driveway and up to our home to take photos of our art work. We drove around looking at gates, here were our choices!

catching bugs in the field.
Fieldwork is a delightfully peaceful spot. The lower pine forest is amazing, with the yarn bombing. There is research to show that being in nature provides much emotional solace, and it certainly cannot hurt. The field is full of Eastern kingbirds, grabbing bugs.

Hello Jennifer! It is a pleasure to meet you. I'm glad you dropped by. A fellow Canadian, it is nice to see across the country. I haven't traveled down East from BC here so it's always a treat to visit blogs. I love the wearable sculpture. I had to laugh out loud. A really neat place. How fun for sure, a beautiful area! I will bookmark your blog so I may return. =)

I like to see stumps made use of by some sort of sculpture. You've shown all kinds of examples of neat stuff.

Absolutely fascinating...two things struck me forcibly; the abandoned suitcases - really? They were an art installation?

Also the stripped back trunks for a sculptor's vanity. I felt only pain at seeing those.

The fenceworks and the deer hold great appeal. That shot of the kingbird launch is fabby!! YAM xx
