Red in Greenland..

...I'm a big fan of Art... music, writing, painting, poetry... all of it... the idea that some people have the ability to do these things is amazing.. expressing yourself with words... paint... or a musical instrument... I can't get enough of it... I understand as well that being surreal and avante-garde is what drives some artists... but this?... I'm afraid that it... as a work of art... is a bit over my head... I just don't get it.... then again, I've never blended goldfish either....

"COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- An artist with 780 gallons of red dye, three fire hoses and a 20-member crew at his disposal went to Greenland in search of a blank canvas large enough to accommodate his creative impulse.

The result is a blood-red iceberg now sitting off the country's western coast."

...best line of the article?... it's a tie between these two...

"The fjord is filled with hundreds of icebergs -- previously all of them white."

...and

"He invited guests to turn the devices on and someone did, grinding up a pair of goldfish."

I know this neat trick with food coloring and a glass of milk that will turn certain other floating things red.  Fun to leave these objets d'art in the john at the pub.

I guess that makes me an artist too.  Van Gogh's "Starry Night"... Picasso's "Guernica"... and now Beast of Bourbon's "Scarlet Turlet."  Some shmuck will buy it too, no doubt.

speaking of abstract art, Lynn of Reflections in d minor is running a little survey on some abstract paintings, in case you want to toss in your pair of pennies.
