A book grabbed my attention at work today. It was unopened and waiting for me to explore. As I opened that treasure chest of a book I was greeted with the sight of beautiful Northwest forests. Oregon. Lee Kelly has spent a long life creating sculptors and paintings that have become a symbol of Northwest art in America. His exposure is evident throughout Portland with massive metal sculptures and fountains. But I enjoyed the simplicity of a forest as a perfect landscape for Kelly's sculptures. The two share a harmony that depicts an intimacy between the natural and created. earthbound.
