Water Tower No. 5

I look at the world differently I guess......... even if it looks rickety and wobbly, the cast-iron foundation will withstand all winds.

Life is good, yes it is, yes it is...............

I think they'd make a nice set of, say, notecards.
Someone in Australia did a series of "dunnies" (the local lingo for outside toilet)so why not water towers?

Thanks Dinahmow -- excellent idea. I've got more on the way.

i could not help but notice your comment about the cast iron foundation withstanding all winds... i live in galveston, a survivor of Ike and all his destruction, and can tell you winds can destroy the strongest of foundations. All but One, that is always sure to withstand any winds life may blow... that is Jesus Christ... do you know Him? I hope so. i love your art. I don't expect you to post this publicly... i just wanted to share it with you having read your post today. May His grace & peace be yours.

I have no problem with your comment, Anonymous, and welcome your input. I'm sorry you suffered through the devastation of Galveston. And altho I don't plan to engage in a debate about relgion, I will say that my comment regarding the foundation was really more of a metaphor for my own life. And Mister J.C. is not my particular foundation. Vive le diference.
