Winter: Sidewalk Salt Rings

When walking my dog, Chewy, I come across all manner of visual material that influences my interior design and art work projects. Thawing comes and goes in St. Louis, and leaves behind this interesting effect of salt rings on the sidewalks.

I found them quite remarkable in shape, color and texture. Furthermore, it continued the theme of moonscapes that I'd been thinking about since our New Year's Eve blue moon. Not exactly as impressive as crop circles, as it is just a frozen puddle of snowfall with salt crystallizations. The edges and monochromatic colors are naturally perfect. Cutting-edge art for the front of a house, if I must say so! And it's free!
