All the characters have unique expressions and their attitudes may resemble the folks one might encounter enjoying the bike path.
I hope you can see the mustache on Dad's face. I love it! The bikes are pretty neat too. If you look closely, you'll notice they have no spokes. For some reason, I think that is so cool.
Even though I looked at this sculpture up close, I mistakenly imagined the little boy was on a tricycle instead of a bike with training wheels. Perhaps because I feel I look like he does when I ride my tricycle!
Today we are back on the Chandler Bike path at the corner of Hollywood Way. This joyful bronze sculpture is called "Family Outing." It was created by artist, Gary Lee Price, whose work is intended to lift the human spirit.
W. Stanley Proctor is the sculptor of the first bronze sculpture installed along the Chandler Bikepath. It is located at the Keystone St. intersection near Edison Elementary School.
This charming little grouping is called "Wagon Pull." The faces and postures of each little character seems to convey a deep sense of purpose and determination in this playful outing!
The exciting thing about Art Around Burbank is that I haven't even gone out of my way to find art yet! I'm still blogging about art I see in my normal and limited comings and goings. Here's the even cooler thing, there is more that I see almost everyday that is still to come!

The "Trainwalker" by Burbank artist, Shiela Cavalluzzi was created locally at the American Fine Arts Foundry in Burbank. The trainwalker's duty was to walk the tracks, examine and maintain them to keep them safe for public travel. This trainwalker is a very large, concerned and devoted looking fellow who reminds us of the past while we walk the path in the present, perhaps dreaming of the future.
Dear friends and fellow art appreciators,
It is a great joy to develop the Art Around Burbank website. It is a thrill to be surprised by art in my daily routine and be able to share it with you. As you can see from the menu above, the website is expanding beyond the blog to include other visual art resources.
I would like to buy the domain name so that Art Around Burbank can stand on it’s own, and drop the weebly host name. The one year cost is $50. If you can and are willing to donate any amount, even as little as one dollar, I will gladly accept your help!
If you are local, I’ll come to receive the money from you and give you a big hug in return! To anyone who donates the full $50, I will give you your choice of one of my 5 x 7 original acrylic paintings on paper.
Thank you for your consideration! Click to donate
Peace, Lisa PH Caddel
