    2. Best book to read on a hot summer s day Plus, I am reading it for background info since I am taking a class at the Dublin Rec Centre in July that focuses on his art.I bought it at Pottery Barn, of all the funny places to buy an Art book where they re used as coffee table display items.My favorite pictures are on page 75 There are three photos of the Beech snowball and a dog removing one of the sticks from the melting snowball as you do when you re a dog.

    3. If you re not familiar with Andy Goldsworthy, check him out art for purely art s sake temporary, ephemeral, gorgeous.
