Winter is not over yet!

Guest ART-ist on ART IS A WAY

After spending a full and hectic weekend in Toronto working on Peter's documentary BEAUTIFUL BATCHELORS and getting almost no sleep, what an invigorating way to wake up this morning to see my ART submission for ELSA MORA's ART IS A WAY blog.  She created a lively animation to accompany the image. Elsa is THE one to turn to for inspiration, sharing and kindness on all things ART.

More stuff from the old house

In yesterday's post I told you about  this old abandoned house in Chipman that I went in and took a few photographs and in the process decided to take a few objects since the house was a complete disaster zone. Under piles of dirty blankets, dirty clothes, piles of papers and lots of garbage bags were these dolls. Yes there were other things of great interest but hey, it's not my house and I didn't want to be greedy. Eventhough by the time I go back to Chipman in April, the house could very well be torn down. Anyway here are the two other things I took. Only when I got home did I notice how spooky the doll's eyes were once they opened and stared at me.

Old dolls in the old house

While out photographing my blocks a few months ago in Chipman, I came across this abandoned house and was of course drawn to go inside. I crawled in through the front door and was greeted by a crumbling house FULL of junk that had been pissed, shit, puked and fucked on. As I took more pictures I began to noticed that under all this mucky stuff were some friggin amazingly old things. Knowing I wasn't really supposed to be in the house I quickly took a few objects and crawled back out the front door. Here are 2 of the dolls I took.
