The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

van Gogh Buffalo


Seen in Minnesota, 2012
That wasn't the official name for this; I just made it up for some type of title to this post.
Really, someone thought this looked nice.  I guess you can tell I didn't think so.

  2. Those colorspots totally deforms the impression of the animal. Not very respectfull. I agree with you John.

  3. I agree with you, it doesn't add anything to the sculpture at all, it is a farce.

  4. Not much resemblance to the real buffalo, except for maybe a close capture of the shape. Ugly colors for an animal, I'd say, John

  6. Well, it is colorful. I'm not sure Van Gogh would have approved.

  7. Well, that's what I call garish. Poor regal buffalo looks rediculous.

  8. He's just camouflaged in a pointillist world.
