Art and nature

I want to build an earthbag dome.

I’ve been working like mad today trying to put the finishing touches on the upcoming book, Naturescapes: Innovative Painting Techniques Using Acrylics, Sponges, Natural Materials and More, in which Terrence Lun Tse uses leaves, twigs and found objects for painting acrylic landscapes and nature. Then I thought I’d take a little break to look for more examples of organic art.

What I discovered was Earthen Hand Natural Building, a business started by artist Scott Howard. And now … now I want to go to Africa and build an earthbag dome. It’s a vacation, it’s real, it’s cool, it’s art … check it out. Have you found any out of the ordinary escapes? I’d love to hear about them!
