Walking and Window Shopping

 

I was looking for some new scenery for my walk last weekend so I headed to Old Town Scottsdale where I could combine a little window shopping with my normal exercise.  If I go early before the galleries open, I can peek in the windows and admire the art.  Like this shop above, there is always something to see.

I found this sculpture in one of the windows and thought it was simply stunning.  Even with reflection showing in the shop window glass it still looks gorgeous.  I did a little digging and learned this piece is by glass artist Tom Marosz and it costs over $7,000.00.  Too rich for my pocketbook.  That's why I like window shopping.  I can admire the art and it doesn't cost a cent.

That IS a great sculpture, but definitely too rich for my pocketbook as well.

The glass is a lot of bauble, even if I wanted to spend that much, I have no place for it, but it is a JOY to look at. I love glass work.

Such a good idea to visit the galleries through their windows, Sharon! Even seeing them through the computer was nice this morning.

That large painting to the right of center in the first photo would look great in my living room so long as I do not have to see the price tag. :-)

That really is a stunning piece of glass art Sharon, window shopping can be so rewarding in other ways, like getting this shot for example 💙

Wow that glass piece is stunning. I love how it picks up so many colors like a crystal. Whoever buys it needs to have just the right spot for it to show off its beauty properly.
