Seeing Art in the Everyday

The Color of Bowling Balls (2 images)

Picked Michael up from a birthday party at the  Saw Mill Lanes in Columbus.  The balls were the color of Granny Smiths or Neon Orange.

 

Like giant Granny Smith apples

Another Art Car spotted in Columbus OH at the Touch-a-Truck Day. Artist wearing blue shirt  in vertical photo. This is his ONLY car. He glues the items on with silicone glue.   He donated his Art Car #1 to Kentucky Museum of Art & Craft.   Check out more photos at his site.  Saw my first Art Car on July 4th.  Let me know when you spot one where you live.


What’s in Your Fridge?

What’s in your fridge?  This is Ellen R.’s fridge.  She bakes delicious cheesecakes.  When the cream cheese goes on sale, she stocks up. Her husband was preparing for guests to watch a big game if I remember it right. I thought I would photograph fridge interiors and exteriors, a kind of portrait. It was a short term project.  I photographed my own fridge inside and out and decided it wasn’t too interesting to look at like Ellen’s.   ( This is her secondary fridge, not the main one in the kitchen! ) I thought the contents an interesting mix.

There used to be a column in a magazine, what three things can you always find in your refrigerator?


What I Saw on Way to Gifted & Talented Education Confratute

Crepe Paper Spiral

Crepe paper streamers to decorate gyms and carnival booths seem old school. When cleaning out the art room, I uncovered a spiral, layers of colors of vintage crepe paper.  A couple of rolls were stained and faded but I took them out of the plastic wrappers, 49 cent pricetags. Who wound the spiral and why?        “a spiral emanates from a central point, getting progressively farther away as it revolves around the point.” wikipedia

Remember crepe paper streamers?

Remember twisting colors together, taping them up, then they'd droop?
