Different Strokes






Well, I thought I'd seen it all.  Do you love to scroll around on other's blogs to see what blogs they follow?  Your interests change, or you're following too many of the same kind of blogs and you look for other interesting posts.  So what did I come across today?  Pubic hair art and jewelry.  Since I live on a farm, I've seen it all, but that was gross.  I didn't want to post a picture of it, nor ask permission to post it, so I'll tell this story of some of my art instead.
I made a paper mache dachshund and titled it Picasso Can't Have A Dog.  Without going into much detail or psychoanalyzing it, I wrote about it in a stream of consciousness circle above its shoulder (Picasso can't have a dog, no Siddhartha he; manipulator, manipulated...) it goes.  Bigger than life-sized, I made the tail so that it wiggles in a breeze.  Funny thing is, when I finished it, a new book came out about Picasso and his beloved dachshund, a picture of the two of them on the cover.
  I later decided to paint another weenie in the same vein, titled Rollin' In Stink.  From a white whale, a clock, buildings, to a goldfish blowing bubbles, there are many different images on each piece.
Pubic hair art or modern art...  I did paint a portrait of Picasso under the tail of the paper mache piece. 
So, different strokes for different folks, as they say, but I want to see someone wearing that necklace, or maybe I don't.

  4. Fantastic, fun, creative pieces! Love them!
    Of course, I am a big fan of color. :)

    It's funny, there is modern and contemporary art that I really like ... love even...
    and that speaks to me, but some of it ... it's just annoying to have to have
    someone explain the whole concept to me to "get it." I must to admit to some eye
    rolling when things get to far out there.

  6. Pubic hair art is just "over the top, anything to shock". I swear! I've never liked Picasso, but I adore your wiener dog sculpture, it is better than anything Picasso ever did!
