Bad Day Beautiful

[gallery]

My car broke down this morning on the way to do some work. Whilst waiting for the tow truck under a big tree, I began to mope and sulk. Then I noticed the beauty of the tree I was under. If the Creator is able to make things like this then he can get me through days like this too...

She had a very clear idea that this wouldn't be you're average cheese and wine art opening. She wanted some drama and excitement to go with the work, so why not let people 'ride' inside the gallery. Yes there were some obvious safety issues to consider, but danger always = fun right?
