  1. Hello, What a neat place for a walk. The statues are all wonderful to see. I have a few favorites with the bunny and dogs. Happy Monday, enjoy your day! Wishing you a happy new week!

  2. What a wonderful way to have a stroll through town! Beautiful pieces!

  3. Oh these are all so great..
    Up till July 7th.. that's great. maybe I can bring the boys by one day.

  4. Oh my goodness, these are all so good.
    If I really had to choose a favourite it would be Big Sister.

    All the best Jan

  5. Oh my gosh these are wonderful...I’m a big fan of outdoor art, the sculpture garden near where our Colorado family lives is one of our favorite places to visit anywhere. But these you show are I think even more wonderful than my favorites there. Because of the color ...most of the ones in Loveland are bronze. Oh it would be so hard to pick a favorite, just as it is in Loveland. I think Big Sister maybe ... or the ladies on thepark bench (I kind of wanted to sit down and join them in a chat)...also the placement of the painter, with that shadow showing made me gasp in awe. I loved them all, thanks for the tour. I’m going to read more about this remarkable artist.

  6. I liked number 6. All of them are incredible. What a fun walking tour. I bet you really enjoyed. It would be so much fun to see that in person. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I can't pick a favourite.I love the realistic look of these sculptures.

  8. They are all so cool, I love #1 and 12 the best! That would be a fun walk to take!

  9. Okay #3 is my favorite, but really it was tough to pick just one. What I found so wonderful is how real to life they all appear, and especially in #3 if one was walking from a distance you must think they are real people in action. I'd just love to see this walk up close and personal thanks for sharing it with us.

  10. Those are fantastic! Someone has some real talent!

  11. THese are so great! I missed them last year. I'll have to get down there and take a stroll.
