5x5 tag

We just cruised over to Joey's blog - he is a fellow-Floridian - and decided to grab the 5x5 challenge, because we were curious about what would be on the computer here at the gallery. Well, there are a LOT of documents and pictures, so H-Mom went to the desktop, counted to the fifth folder and then took the 5th photo. It was kind of confusing, because she had to skip some program files and there were folders inside folders, so she just counted the documents, and then she had to actually DELETE some stuff because she found some random and errant photos (flamingo shaped holiday lights? what was that doing in there?)

Well, she finally found this photo, which is a bmp file and thank goodness it uploaded okay. It is a painting by Dominic Besner, just labeled "untitled," which doesn't help anyone much.

It looks kind of like an alien or a lizard or some kind of scarey creature with its tongue sticking out. It doesn't look like a dog because there are no ears. We can kind of imagine the noise that it would be making. Not a pleasant noise.

H-Mom really likes this artist, but some of his paintings are difficult to enjoy. There are others that are "prettier."

Maybe it's because it's so small but I thought it was one of those old covered wagons. Like the western folks used to ride around in, with horses & everything...odd I know.

I think Eduardo is right...I am starting to see the wagons and such....
I so adore your photo at the top of your page and cannot believe you show your teethies like I do....hehe You are just too adorable to be mean.....
I looked pretty scary getting onto Sharkie, but I was actually just playing.

Hi Madison, glad you took the tag! That painting looks to me like a scary monster riding a unicycle. I hope your eyes are feeling better.

See ya!


We thought it was a cat in a mailbox getting ready to jump after a bird.

We are glad you enjoyed the letter K. If nobody tags you, we suggest that you pick a letter all on your own.

I thought it was a giant pig above a wagon wheel. I have to admit, this is not something I (or mom) would buy or hang in our house. Sorry.
Neat meme, though.
