I’ve finished a new painting – a rotary phone. I’ve posted it on Reddit and Imgur with interesting feedback.
The most common comment was that there is no cradle to hold the receiver and this bothered people. This model phone did not have the “prongs” that are typical of rotary phones. Instead, the body of the phone was curved to hold the handset.
It’s interesting to see what bothers people, or what makes them uncomfortable. Is that what art is supposed to do?
My husband and I participated in the 2016 April Fool’s Rallye with our car club, ESCA. The Rallye is not based on time for completion, it is instead based on how “correct” your choices are. Each team is given two choices and you have to figure out which choice has a gimmick or tries to trick you. It’s all about rules and how you interpret them in the real world. I believe we placed first in expert class with a score of 652 out of 692 – third overall out of probably 40 people.
Tomorrow I go back to work for the first time since my jaw surgery. I’m so excited to be busy again.
