Personalized Stall Plaques
Talk about eclectic (i.e. "kitchen sink" theory of art). Here's horse name signs Mommy just finished. There's the calligraphy, I guess you'd call it, in the horse's colors; a little bit of fluid art for spice; then a matching macramé cord to it hang by.
I mean, how am I supposed to review this? What category? Why style? What medium? Mixed up, if you ask me.
But the plaque does have it's charm: Personalized with the horse's name and colors; color coordinated hanger (a good way to get the macramé in and throw me off); and a surprise feather to score some points with me. The real life rough sawn fence board stained in black just takes the cake. I have one question. Why hasn't she made barn plagues for our horses, huh? Or for ME, come to think of it? The cobblers children have no shoes, etc., etc.
What should I give this? Stars wise.
Dog Begins Promising Career As Art Critic
I'm taking over from my dear blogging brother, Barney (a.k.a. "Digger", 'cause that's what he did). My assignment: revue her art creations, which she described to me as "eclectic". After checking Webster's, I think that means she can't make up her mind what the heck she wants to do.
But after my recent speedy online degree in Fine Arts, I'm sure I can steer her career in the right direction. I mean, come on! She goes from traditional and realistic portraiture, to abstract fluid art, to macramé, to handmade jewelry, for heaven's sake. She has got to FOCUS!
A Very Fine Example
My personal favorite is a portrait of moi (naturally - See above). It looks to be a combination of realistic portraiture and fluid abstract. It's fun. It's colorful. And you can't go wrong with that face, amirite? I give it 5 stars!
