. . . saw nightmarish qualities

in these photographs. I was driving around yesterday, running errands, and spied a bunch of rusty stuff on a side street. I circled the block and came upon a bunch of old abandoned moving vans.

These pictures are all of a step on one of the vans that was covered with some kind of goo. . . I didn't touch it, but took some pictures, noticing the interesting textures.

I certainly had plenty of clunkers in this batch of pictures, but these, I thought, are phenomenal, albeit creepy, scary. There are things that look like bodies, fossils, things trying to crawl out of some primordial ooze, maybe. . . just use your imagination.

Such wonderful things just happen, don't they? To people, too, I think. I must keep that in mind.

Although I didn't paint, I did clean up my art space, which took a long time. I also went to visit a gallery where I have some paintings that just aren't selling, thinking I would take them home. The owner talked me into leaving them there. . . I guess I defintely won't sell them at home. I still have almost a fully day today to get something started. . .

Enjoy your full day ahead Mary. Art sales will pick up as people get out and about more with the better weather, upcoming vacations and such.

Those images are sooooo awesome, (that's some pretty cool goo), I love them!

Yes, indeed...bodies on the ground, bodies floating up in the sky, bodies and "things" all over the place. This is how wonderful things begin. Maybe this is how Tim Burton gets his "seeing" things just "there". Good job spying these, Mary!
