Should have kept it a secret! I made this mixed media piece, titled “Take that”, with the idea of representing kid’s play. In it I used one of my Grandson’s plastic toy guys. (at the bottom of the piece). I made the BIG mistake of not keeping that a SECRET. When I showed Dominic (3 years old), he wanted his guy back (you know, because he only has about 60 at my house, and he’d sure need this one back). So it cost me a trade of two of my miniature lizards and one of my miniature frogs. (similar to the ones I used in the collage,) which he took home and promptly lost. SO the next time I steal from his overflowing, he has no idea what all is in there, huge toy box at my house, I am SO keeping it a SECRET!

For Inspire Me Thursday’s Theme: Art and Architecture
As a digital artist, this is my version of Street Art. My daughter Julie took the picture of this architectural embellishment on a building along Grand Ave in St. Louis. I DIGITALLY added the clown climbing up the wall, inspired by the wonderful street art of OS GEMEOS,

Julie takes terrific pictures of the architecture around St. Louis, especially the downtown Washington street area. To see some of Julie’s blogged photos, go to this site:
