Os and Xs

019Long-weathered, long-lying-there tree branches lying as they feel in a curious geometric form, reminded us of a game playing board – for chess? for snakes & ladders? No, but Yes, for noughts and crosses.

Os and Xs is based on the long slim branches weathered grey. In recent times, arty players have placed their white crosses.

Noughts from rocks are scattered, some waiting ready to compete.

See the paint black pen lines around the O holes, white on the inside.

Somehow, there is a feel of tension and activity in this whimsical Land Art piece, though not a white rabbit to be seen.

The Os will be rocks of ages. The Xs should endure soem hot-cold, dry-windy seasons before renovation is needed.
