I’m in love!

.

With my husband, yes… of course.

But also with these:

.

.

Gorgeous little masterpieces made with leaves,twigs, blooms and berries.

.

.

Called land art…

.

.

Because as soon as the wind blows?

.

.

They’re gone.

Each of Bullen-Ryner’s pieces comprises locally sourced and foraged materials. Nothing is glued or tethered, which means her work might only last a few minutes before parts begin to fly away with the breeze. So, why does she choose to work this way? “People often ask me why don’t I make something more permanent or they say it’s such a shame that it’s temporary,” Buller-Ryner shares. “But for me, it is the ephemeral nature of what I do that has become like therapy for my soul. I get to put down all my anxieties, my fears, all the chaos from my brain and turn it into something beautiful to honor Mother Nature. I take some photos and then walk or cycle away, leaving it all behind and feeling calmer, more connected, and truly lighter.

.

Such beautiful little treasures.

.

.

Yes.

.

.

I’m definitely in love.

.

.

Admit it….

.

.

You are too!

.

As long as they keep making them…..

 

Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring seems to be a favorite in the re-created art catalog.

For which I’m glad.

Though this next one does differ quite substantially from the original….

You have to applaud the commitment.

There.

Proof positive your mother was wrong when she said you’d never find a place to wear head to toe green.

Man with vacuum cleaner.

You know women will swoon over this.

Oh. My….

The less said about this the better!

The last batch.

 

But really, how can you not love these art re-creations?

 

 

Look at that woman!

Having her husband’s head on a platter has simply made her day worth living.

 

 

The nose is a little less spectacular, but okay.

 

 

Wow.

Im not sure which is more disturbing, the original or the remake.

 

 

Is it me…

Or does that guy look like George Harrison’s Indian guru from the 60’s?

 

 

Art imitating life, or life imitating art?

Either way…. that man is slaying it.

And now, the final picture.

Which couldn’t be any more relevant if it tried.

 

Re-created art…. the finale.

 

Here are the last 3 examples I’ll gleefully share with childlike enthusiasm bore you with.

The original…

The re-creation…

I’m going to go out on a limb and say this fellow might have enjoyed the exercise a little too much.

The original….

 

 

The re-creation…

 

 

Proof positive modern life is lame.

And because this one literally made me snort, I saved it for last.

The original…

 

 

The re-creation…

 

 

Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.

Because we all need a little more laughter these days.

A limited afternoon series.

 

For the next few afternoons I’m going to be my usual helpful self and give you something to do while you’re quarantining yourself at home like a good viral citizen.

Lately the net has been filled with clever and creative ways to occupy your time…. but I’m going to share one from the Getty Museum that really made me smile.

Since visits to their museum have been cancelled for the near future, they challenged their members to re-create their favorite works of art.

Here are some of my favorites:

The original…

 

 

The re-creation….

 

 

Kudos to this couple.

I don’t know what the hell he put on his head, but damn.

It works.

The original…

 

 

The re-creation….

 

 

I’m not sure Dali would approve, but I’ll give them an A for effort.

And finally, here’s one that’s better seen by side.

 

Brilliant, I tell you!

Simply brilliant.
