Hi Everyone! I am finally back. It seems my computer is again fighting for it's life and since there is no money in our budget for a new one I figure I will pray and keep the computer defibrillator on hand in case it's heart gives out.
So far so good.
I wanted to post this on Friday but couldn't. For a long time now I have toyed with the concept of "left" art....or maybe it's "street" art or perhaps "lost and found" art....I have no clue, but I have seen a few artists leave their work behind as a sweet surprise for the finder.
One awesome example of this is one of my fave artists Slinkachu who leaves brilliant miniature scenes behind. He has a few books out which always seem to be out when I visit the book store. He is a sample of his work
Isn't he brilliant?
Well, I wanted to do some "left behind" art...(geez I don't know what to call it) and chose to use rocks.
On closer inspection someone might notice a little something
Hmmm, is that a stone? but it looks like a bit of writing on it....
upon closer inspection a positive message for the finder.
While putting these on the blog I realized that I forgot to take a picture of the other side of the stone where I painted a design.
OK then, maybe next time.
We went to the beach. and there on this tiny beach lay a boulder. On top of the boulder I placed another rock
I wondered who would pass by on a beautiful sunny day and notice this colorful stone waiting to be found
and I wonder if when they turned it over and read the words...
would they smile?
again, another photography booboo... I forgot to take a picture of the rock further away. What can I say...I don't really have a photographer's instinct.
These are my first attempts #1 and #2
In the future I plan to leave more and keep a record of the process on this blog.
