Playful Picasso

How does one describe the work of Leslie Codina? If Picasso sculpted clay totems when he was in a playful mood, these are what he might have designed. Clay totems of gigantic beads of stylized organic shapes painted in imaginative colorways and fired to strengthen.
Leslie and her husband are expecting their first child in two months. That is going to be one lucky child- raised with love and creativity.
This photo is of Leslie's new installation at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia. To learn more about Leslie's work and this funtastic permanent display- link to this page of Thousand Oaks writer Debra Prinzing's blog

OMG, I LOVE those clay totems! I haven't been to the LA Arboretum in years. It was always a favorite place of ours, Jerry's and mine. He even worked security there when the studio was filming "Fantasy Island" on the property. I have it on my list of "To Do" when I'm in LA again. Thanks L. I just love whimsical garden stuff!
