Meet The Artist

A  L  O  H  A !
Steel Cactus

"The cactus thrives
in the desert 
while the fern thrives 
in the wetland.

The fool will try 
to plant them 
in the same 

The child will turn 
it around properly so 
that the fern is in 
the shade, and 
not the cactus."

           Vera Nazarian

"The flight from boredom 
is the mother of all art." 
       Rudiger Safranski


Peter Keresztury, 
Photographer - Sculptor 
- Producer - Director 
- Curator.

Driving around the 
neighborhoods of Novato CA
one see's great natural
beauty, hills, meadows,
horses. . . ART!

We have long admired
these steel cactus, and 
spinning kinetic 
sculptures adorning 
the front lawn of a 
nice house in 
 a pleasant 
Novato neighborhood.

"Let's knock on the door.
Let's leave a note!"

I wanted to know.

Marin Open Studios
Was on Saturday, 
and sure enough
the house with the
sculptures had a 
welcoming M.O.S. sign!

You can learn about
this Marin Artist


Thank YOU
          Warmly, cloudia

Cool stuff! I never knew that Novato had so much to offer. Wonder if he got the inspiration for his steel cactus from "Steel Magnolias"???

What a wonderful artist indeed! His works are marvelous thanks for sharing them and him. I like the idea of leaving a note, or a secret package, (of joy) on someone's doorstep. Thanks for reminding me of what we used to do in our neighborhood when my children were little. You know I should do it again!
