Textured Tuesday: Hosta

There are hosta of various species planted all around 
the grounds of the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
This one, whose name I do not recall,
has acquired an artistic temperment all its own,
looking as though it'd grown up to be
in an Edward Weston photograph.
All its ribs and curves reminded me of
Weston's studies of green peppers.

These pictures make me wish I'd spent 
more time playing with it, watching for 
more expressive lines as the shadows changed, 
emphasizing the plants' beautiful curves.

And here is a third in the series of benches 
designed by the Danish artist, Jeppe Hein, and placed 
at various sites around the 100 Acres lake.
There are fifteen benches in the series,
of which I saw five.

Georgia o'Keeffe, eat your heart out.
You are a true artist with that camera, Speedway.

Thanks, Dive. I wish I could have had the nerve to capitalize on my erotic art the way O'Keeffe had.
