When you have a poky little bathroom which will probably crumble to dust before it ever gets renovated, might as well make it fun, right? Maybe this fits the category of repurposed art, if there’s a sub category called completely obliterating the original.
That last photo is the before picture. I mean who am I kidding, this is not a spa in France. These are beautiful stretched canvases with (what has become to me) boring prints on them. I perked them up, and it was delightful fun.
Soon my entire house will look like an LSD trip from the sixties. If you’re coming over, bring your shades.
Lucy in the
Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she’s gone
Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you’re gone
Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking-glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes
This little nostalgic trip back to the 60’s is compliments of the Beatles and their biggest fan, Merbear, at Knocked Over By A Feather for her Beatles Contest. Thanks Mer! Lately I’ve been on my own crazy little contest-entering trip.
And no, I was NOT high when I did the art work, but in case you feel like you are now, after staring at it for a while, I would just like to point out that the orange background is an actual picture of a jar of marmalade. I sure hope Paul is impressed and didn’t miss that.
