If that is not art, nothing I would call art!

Enjoy those beautiful pictures our loving sister Tatiana forwarded to me via e-mail. It's her Birthday Today! She wrote in the mail.

"Drawing Lines on the sand... sign of our times. It is fragile  and little tiny blow of wind thing may destroy it."

IT'S NOT A BIRD

 

 

And then this landed in my inbox.  I could not resist sharing it.  This parrot is, in fact, a female model who posed for Johannes Stotter, a fine art body painter.  Using breathable paint, he spent hours painstakingly turning this woman into the image of a parrot, brush stroke by brush stroke. The model's arm forms the parrot's head and tail feathers.  Remember:  always take a closer look as things aren't always what they appear to be!

 

Artist/photo: Johannes Stotter

Once you see her, the bird disappears!
