The Denver Performing Arts Center has this sculpture of two stick figures dancing in front of it. They remind me of Steven Spielberg aliens. What do you think? Like or dislike? Of course, whenever you have public art you almost always have controversy. One man’s trash is another man ‘s treasure.

Fresh blossoms add beauty and grace to any space. Displaying them beautifully adds positive impact to your feng shui. These colorful glass vases add charm to home or office. Look for multiples to display floral arrangements in an artful way. You can even make your own by repurposing pretty wine bottles like those shown above. Or go for some gorgeous designer vases like these ‘bulb vases’ from Ed Branson.

This art piece by Beth Derbyshire may or may not float your boat. She calls it the rootless forest and essentially it’s a reclaimed barge filled with trees that travels up and down a canal. We once had a turtle living in our canoe. And here in Maine you’ll often see creative people turning all sorts of things into planters (old ski boots, toilets, woodstoves, to name a few). Is it art?

If I believed in heaven I might imagine the stairway to it to look like this. Photo lifted from design-dautore.com.
