Who doesn’t have childhoods memories of laying on the ground, gazing up at the clouds, and discovering the white and gray painted images against the blue sky — a long tailed dog, a floppy eared rabbit, a winged elephant, a man smoking a cigar…

Lets face it, when it comes to art, nothing has a bigger canvas to paint on than the clouds and nothing has a bigger gallery for hanging things in than the sky.

But that doesn’t mean the rest of nature doesn’t like to flex its own artistic talents. Sure, the mediums tend to be mixed, the canvas’ complicated, and the galleries small and over crowded. But with just a little bit of focus, its not to hard to imagine what the rest of Nature is sharing.

Here are some of Nature’s artwork from my front yard.  I call it Nature’s Yard Art — nature’s way of giving things their own unique twist …
