Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens

Todays adventure was up in West Palm Beach at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens.  It was a lovely house with almost two acres of gardens and let me tell you, Ann was an amazing sculptor.  She was very passionate about her art and her grand sculptures were throughout the property.  Some of them must have been more then twenty feet high, such amazing work from such a tiny woman.  My mom, Rio and I had the place to ourselves and it was peaceful and full of eye candy for us to take in.  There was also an exhibit inside the main house of found pieces made into sculptures or mixed media artwork, nice, but nothing compared to seeing Ann's studio with dozens of finished and unfinished work, miniature sculptures that would later turn to her large pieces and all of her tools that she used to create.  It was quite inspiring walking into her studio.  She accomplished so much in her life and THAT is something to look up to and aspire to.
