The sun is shining again after several days of rainy weather. Last weekend, a day-trip to the western Connecticut hills for an Open House at a landscape sculpture park and tree farm. Driving south-west, we left the rain and fog behind, and by mid-day the sun was out, hot and bright, the threat of showers gone. Partly for work, but all about pleasure, it was a delight to view Edward Tufte‘s large-scale sculptures against a backdrop of bright blue autumn skies and hills dotted with orange and yellow. A composition of playful sculptures sprinkled across a hilltop landscape, deeply rooted in science and art, defying gravity. For more info about the works, go to Tufte’s website.
