Some temporary art

Here is an image made by j of waiting room aquarium (she has been busy with school but will be back posting at some point). She enjoys working with words. Below are a couple of goofy ones I made yesterday...one of them was just glueing eyes on a great lump of turf in a wheelbarrow to make a troll, you may have to click/blow it up to see the eyes. Anyway, I'm hoping some readers who aren't participating in the Travelling Alice project will take up the gauntlet  (see yesterday's post) on this one. Another scene from Hitchcock tomorrow - watch out for those beaks!

I like the idea of carrying a pair of eyes around to apply them temporary to create faces - great...

The troll is great, very subtle but would draw an unexpected smile if anyone spotted it.

The right one seems to be an ambush.

aw THANK YOU MISS SUSAN!

I really like your two photographs because it makes you think of and look at things in a different way.
I look forward to seeing what else you come up with : )

possibly on mailboxes or perhaps even leaves next?


p.s. you shoul check out www.picturesofwalls.com
and p.p.s have you thought any more about the scrap paper collaboration idea we were discussing the other day?

Ger, another pair of eyes is always helpful with creation.

Eva, I like the way you use puns for elucidation, the sidenit has stayed with me.

very cute. I especially like the rectangular cover in the street. I'd laugh like hell if I was walking along and saw that.

Laurie Cannon said...

Great idea, Susan
we should all carry around
a couple extra eyes,
a mouth,
just in case.
agree with Ger

Thought the top picture
was going to be a scene
from "The Birds".

I agree with you(about the statue and the stick).My camera is not well,but if you could see them closely,they were just like a mother and a baby!!!

Caroline said...

What a great idea! Can imagine someone doing a double take at the troll!
