This weekend was the bi-annual Cottonwood Art Festival, which I have mentioned before that we love. Last fall I also first encountered Dave Rizzo‘s sculptures, which you can see in the header of my newly redesigned blog! I was excited to meet the Rizzos in person for the first time since the redesign. I’ve mostly communicated with Mrs. Rizzo, and I had so much fun meeting her. She is a beautiful lady and I wish I had pictures of her to show you (she had on some beautiful jewelry that I LOVED), but she said she’d rather I take a picture of Dave since it’s his work that we love so much.
So here we are, me and Dave Rizzo:
Behind me you can see more of the beautiful figures that inspire me. Before I had only seen that he had free-standing sculptures, but now he also has some mounted on wall plates as part of the sculpture, which I think are also amazing and definitely less likely to be knocked over by a toddler in our home! Christian and I are planning on getting one or more as soon as we can. If you are looking for earthy but also whimsical pieces for your home, I highly recommend any of these. Their web site contains more images of other sculptures as well.
A few more images from this year’s festival – I was happy to note the addition of recycling cannisters throughout the festival this year (note the lower left corner of the first picture)! Way to be green, Richardson!
