The Backyard Diva............

My wonderful son is working on a landscaping crew this summer.  They are responsible for clearing vacant and abandoned lots in a rather large city near us.  Within a week of beginning this job, my son had every member of the landscaping  crew (including the owner) picking up trash for his mother.  Soon, I received crates full of rusted metal, discarded landscaping materials, and even broken toys.  While some of the members of my son's crew may not completely understand why his crazy mom wants this stuff, they have been more than willing to join the cause!

The above piece is a tribute to my son and his work friends.  It is composed of rusted metal, discarded landscape materials, acrylic paint, and found wire.
