Sunday Drive, Part 2 - The Sculpture Ranch

Italian artisit Benini and his wife have a home and an art gallery nestled in the Texas Hill Country just outside Johnson City on a piece of LBJ's former ranch. The house sits on top of a hill with spectacular views. The 140 acres display 110 contemporary sculptures and a gallery for Benini's work. The ranch is now for sale so we figured we'd better get up there to check it out. We also bought a lottery ticket on the way - just in case...

Below are some of my favorites on the ranch.

 Agaves - LaPaso

 Transit - Walter Horak

Paladin - Bettye Hamblen Turner

Dancers - Jerry Daniel
