The Blue Hour at The Friendship Bench

This photo, taken in late fall's evening light, makes a good thing even better. The raised bed behind the bench allows the asters envelope anyone sitting there in a cloud of blue violet. The bench's flaking surface was a happy accident of too thinned acrylic paint. I was trying to age the concrete bench, painted it dark, the paint flaked off, voila! aged bench. The wood fired ceramic water jar is by artist Richard Brandt.
