Garden face




I think it's fun having faces in the garden in unexpected places.



I made this garden face out of some leftover grout from my mosaic garden stone, if you remember, here.




I brushed on some forest green paint to give him some depth.






He's hanging on the garden fence keeping watch over the garden.


Enjoy your day!

Oh, I love it! It looks like it could be placed in a water fountain having water running from its mouth.;)
It also reminds me of the "La Bocca della VeritĂ " ("the Mouth of Truth") in Rome, featured in the movie "Roman Holiday".;))
Have a great midweek dear Donna,
xoxo

Donna, I love this old fellow. He looks like he must have a good soul, and I'll bet he has wonderful stories to share.

Great job!
