I was asked to participate in a book where artists are given tasks that they don't ordinarily do. I had to make a sculpture. This is what I came up with. I didn't have a lot of time to spend on it. So I found this hollow plastic head. I guess it's used to display hats or something. I sawed the top off. Then I got a nice plant at the farmer's market along with some compost. Then I painted the eyes and dripping tears. I went out near my apartment to a spot that had an empty cement pedistle. Again I'm not much of a photographer. I took a bunch of shots and hoped one came out. I left it there as is. I wonder how long it will last. Maybe some folks will get a smile out of it.
