A fish out of water
What exactly did he have in mind? A garden nome? A garden angel? An ornate birdbath?
How about an aluminum fish tail?
Tom and Ann, Annapolis residents, are both avid gardeners and Ann had envied the sculptures in her father's garden.
An employee for C&P Telephone for 40 years, Tom had always dabbled in art and in retirement started taking sculpture classes at Anne Arundel Community College.
The fish tail is made of the aluminum sheeting that is used on roofs and the scales are rivited to a metal frame in a cement block. Tom promised that there are more rivets in the sculpture than there are in the Brooklyn Bridge.
He chose the theme, which looks to me like a giant shrimp, because Ann's husband, Geoff, loves seafood. I was looking around for a giant vad of cocktail sauce.
By the way, sushi was served at the unveiling....
