Tulips, Art, and a Rock Slide
When I showed the postcard on the left to my husband, he said, "What is that? Is that a mango?" Since this is a photograph of a tulip, printed on fabric and fused to painted fabric, I can't think my drawing skills are at fault this time. Then I showed him the other one: "Now that's a tulip. I can tell that's a tulip!" Isn't it odd that a grade-school level stamp of a tulip looks more like a tulip than the real thing does? That says something profound about art, I think, but I'm not sure what. Of maybe it just says something about Bob.
And speaking of art, I am now on Plan B for Interpret This. As often happens, I had the idea when I was half awake this morning. I'm hoping it will look as good on paper and cloth as it did in my drowsy brain.
