NEW from Janus Park Walk -

"Looking to Rent"

Once again I've decided to post a larger image after running it through a new filter that seems to be growing on me. In some sense, a jumbled up collage appearance (although not very evident here) is beginning to become clear in my head as regards some upcoming work. In a lot of ways I have John Mora to thank for a clearer vision of this sort of thing, his work is fabulous and well worth a look see. Especially this piece that incorporates parts of a photograph by the trés cool Lisa Sarsfield.

The shortage of nests is serious during the winter -there are only igloos to rent.

My advice for this couple: fly away!

Now there's an idea! I should build a birdhouse out of icicles! How big is your igloo, Susu?

You're more than welcome as regards the press the other day. I really like seeing work done in a way that I never think to do. It's inspiring and invigorating.

As for the birds? Where's my Collins Bird Guide got away to? (...and he scratches his head...) :D

Hmm...I had a feeling my comment didn't post here proparly so thought I would come back again.

I am still just as impressed with this as I was yesterday when I saw it for the first time. I really like this, it's jaw-droppingly awesome! You've combined 2 of my great loves beautifully. It does look like a collage to me, the ripped paper and whole shapes sort. I like the title too...Very cool:)

PS: I was inspired by you too and found my own lab. The other one dosn't like me it would seem so your secrets shall remain safe...

Lisa Sarsfield:
Thank you and thank you again, Lisa ... for coming back as well as for the wonderful comment. Now you have me curious as regards the Lisa Visual Laboratory. You can whisper it over the transom if you need to. :)

Hmmm ... perhpas so, Hélène. I see a bit of Patrick Caulfield in this and he's one of my influences. Now, where are those brushes? :)

What a wonderful collaborative effort! I love the color, makes it really "pop"!

It was the filter that made the blue so rich. Almost unrealistically so, but it sure does "pop!" :)
