Newly-acquired cellulite aside, I would like to take this opportunity to share the following recent works, plus two squabbling parakeets. This little beauty is a tree outside of our building, as it appeared […]
Can you find the hidden heart in this pic? A garden statue with remarkable character. Bike on! A little patriotism goes a long way. This kitty damn well sleeps where she pleases. An autumn’s day in Carpenter’s Woods. Victorian Tulpehocken. Victorian Tulpehocken (detail). How many faces of Jesus can you spot in this pic? Baby Girl blends in so well with the fallen leaves. Super puggle! Food art. Mural art. More mural art. Even more mural art.
