A Fabulous Friday Feeling - An Encounter with Richard Long

After creating a prototype earring design with the land artist, Richard Long, in mind (see here) I was really excited to see that Yorkshire Sculpture Park had one of pieces installed in their grounds.

I love this piece for its simplicity and apparent banality.  I identify with the act of celebrating and elevating something as simple as walking or a line into a work of art.  Placed bravely, drawn quietly and left resting on the earth, open to judgement, begging criticism and forcing opinions to be made.
