hay day

On a recent jaunt to the Nursery, I met artist Michael Shaughnessy in the parking lot.  Mom taught me never to talk to strangers but this fellow had a four foot finial of hay strapped to the roof of his car.  And so, I just had to say "Hey".  His medium and handiwork are fantastic as an installation along the water or, crafted into a quiver of smaller orbs to form a clutch of garden stools to roll up to an outdoor table.
