These artworks are just two of many smile producing sculptures at Frivolous Tendencies. This Talent, Oregon, shop gives recycled corrugated barn roofs a whole new life as art. These whimsical works are the result of some very hard work. But all that is hidden. What comes through in the finished product is lightness of spirit and a direct link to the very essence of joy.
