art abandonment at the riverwalk


I have been participating with other artist in a "movement" called  Art Abandonment.  You create a piece of art and secretly place it in an everyday place for some lucky person to find.  The whole idea is to bring a smile to someones face.  You leave a note with the art tell the person that it is a gift to them.  The first time did it I felt like a little kid, you can read the post here. 

This morning I got up at 6:45am, with my camera strapped to my shoulder and went to the Naperville Riverwalk.  It's a beautiful place to walk along a river. 

My intention was to abandon 2 more pieces of art at the riverwalk.  Yet I received much more.  I found serenity sitting on the park bench under this big tree while listening to the river cascade over rocks.  Peaceful would adequately describe the start to my morning.


  1. What a beautiful place to sit and just be. I could journal or read a book or just take photos there.

    Art abandonment...great idea!

  2. What a way to start your day and put a smile on your face. And also that of the lucky person who will find your piece of art in the park.

  3. That's my kind of peace! So enjoyed your post, Theresa!
