Once that Christmas display comes down the yard looks lifeless.. the school bus passes bye & I see the little eyes peering, noticing the giant 13foot snowman is gone... for 11 months. What about the rest of the year?
Norm has been focusing on his props as it is his "passion' he sold a few of the Halloween props this past year including the gates! Now there space for more, I figure - why not- lets make something 'small' for every month! I already have next months idea ready to start- you Know it' got LOVE in it. Norm does the wood working and design how the Props will move. Snoopy has his ears flapping in the wind. (You can see it work on Norms IG page -Peschel props.)
It's also called a 'compromise'. Norm wants work done - so do I & like most working relationships- you've got to give to get - wait until you see the sweet little cut its I've been planning.. It amazes me how we can't even seem communicate many days- but are still capable of working on these projects together.
Since I too have a handy man at my disposal- I'll design some props & have some creative fun - for all our neighbours to enjoy ( I hope they do) I know it would give me a little smile to see these little shows of creativity.. who would you like to see!??
I think Im going to stick with another Snoopy for Valentines day- after all I LOVE Snoopy & Charles Schultz - "Sparky" the genius, the man, the humble human. IF' I could sit & hang out with someone - it would be Charles. Others cartoonists- they get me. Some of my best real life friends are other artists/cartoonist... we understand each other to some degree I feel. Ironically, lol - it was another cartoonist on Instagram- after seeing his office- I was inspired to clean up my act! Bill Alger - I am quite fond of his 'Hippie Protest monsters'- I figure Bill & must be the same age, his treasures- give me a good giggle, I often think - I remember those! Especially his 'Get Screwed Men', I'm searching for my own. hee hee hee
Trinkets & pets, surround yourself with love & smiles.
