Painting With Flowers

Img_1973Sweet Husband and I took a country drive to Pendleton's Market today to see the newest bit of work by crop artist, Stan Herd.

This particular piece is a gigantic version of one of the new stamps issued by the U.S. Postal Service celebrating pollinating insects.  It features a Southern Dogface butterfly.

I wish we could have made it out to see it last weekend when they were doing the first "unveiling" because they had a 40 foot lift, and I think we would have been able to see it better from higher up.  Even from the little side tower that was there it was still pretty cool though.

Here's a news article with a better picture and more info.
