As I walk this city of Amarillo, Texas, I find many more signs planted in the yards of the community. Each location seems somehow related to the message of the sign, in most cases.

I Got the Sad Blue Blues

The house of the yard this sign is in, is the richest, deepest, bluest blue I think I've ever seen any house, anywhere. It's so blue, it makes me think of a storm, for some reason.

Your Knight, In Shining Armour

Ladies, as far as a knight in shining armour existing anymore, it's possibly just this artwork, being it. They don't tend to really exist, except in rare cases.

But, being in a truly infinite universe, even the rarest of the rare, happens an infinite number of times. I hope you think the artwork itself, is cool.

Coca-Cola, Anyone?

Hey, something good enough to become considered worthy of becoming an art icon, must be worth giving a mention to. Coca-Cola has been an American staple for decades now and, likely will only increase in prosperity. I see nothing wrong with that.

Some, More Interesting, Than Others

While some expressed perhaps a more "commercial" feel to them, others of these artworks, seemed to actually express something artistic and, for the love of art.

While steeped in an uncomfortable - to say the least - controversy over their creator, Stanley K. Marsh, III, it's hoped the art itself is still appreciated.

Tell me what you think. Discuss the controversy. Teach the controversy.

I think the world needs more art, I used to paint giant blenders and such on buildings.

I love any type of art. I think when schools offer art it is such a wonderful opportunity for children. They can learn techniques and be creative. Congratulations on being author of the day.
