Random Acts of (holiday) Art -Day 2 of 100happydays.

As a photographer and a painter, I am always envious of large-scale sculptors or installation artists. It takes a lot of courage to put your work on display for the general public to look at while they are out on the streets shopping or picking up lunch. It takes a special kind of courage to act as a gorilla-artist and put that work on display out in the open without ever being paid for your efforts. In my neighborhood, some unknown artist or group of artists decided to put up this amazing 12-foot holiday ornament complete with colorful lights with the sole intent of spreading a bit of cheer to passersby. I for one am very grateful for their efforts. Thanks random anonymous artist(s), you rock!
