Art of the Day: Tuesday June 27, 2017


- by Vicky Knowles

This week's theme: The Usual

There are things and places in this world that aren't what we consider usual. In reality, much of what we consider unusual isn't out of the ordinary. If we pause long enough to take in what's around us, if we allow ourselves to focus on the thoughts and images that are always moving through our mind, it will become obvious that "usual" is nothing but a thin veneer.

Art: Chaos by Artist Vicky Knowles
I spy with my little eye, something that begins with . . . CHAOS!!

I know I've said it before, but this painting really does have it all! It's like the Wiggly World version of "fruit basket upset" - remember that game? All your favorite characters plus lots of new friends, all swirling around in one moderately sized painting. Let's take a roll call: I see Wiggly Worm, Mr. Quackers (the duckephant), Mr. Glove, Bloo the elephant, Mr. Bones the Boston Terrier, the Ice Cream Cone, Sparky the kitten & his nemesis the Squid, The Jellyfish, a Giraffe, Snowmy (the snowman), Jack Pumpkin-Head (the Jack-O-Lantern), the Ghost, a Lizard, Clowny (the clown), a Purple Bunny, the Monkey King, Snailey the Snail, and a bunch of others I can't be bothered to list. This painting will keep you entertained for weeks, maybe even months!
