Week 2 of the A-Z Challenge begins!
I occasionally go bike riding in a place where there is a large sculpture made out of old canoes. I've admired it, and one day researched the artist. His name is Christopher Fennell, he is an American sculptor. He has degrees in both sculpture and engineering, using all that knowledge, along with recycled materials, he produces amazing assembled pieces. Canoe Wave (below) is part of his wave series.

My very favorite piece of his is Bicycle Tornado.
