Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

But Is It Art?

The other day, when temps stayed at or near freezing, Ma Nature made art. See?

Hmmm. Maybe we should stand back a little.

Yeah, that's better. Is it a golden medallion?

Or is it some kind of sculpture? Nah, it's just the ice that formed on the horse water tubs. But if you add a cat . . .

. . . then you've got an interactive piece of art.

But a cat can soon lose interest.

Let's add a different cat.

Hmmm. Interesting. But is it art?

Maybe you have to look at it from another side.

Or sneak up on it. And squint.

It radiates a nice glow thanks to the reflection of the setting sun.

It's pretty, but is it art?
