A Graffiti Tour
"That is a dumb idea" was my artistic son's response to me saying that his sister and I were going to spend an upcoming Saturday afternoon shooting pictures of graffiti. But since when do I listen to HIM?
So when Anna and I go on our graffiti-photo-taking-tour I will be sure to blog about some of our favs.....in the meantime here is my friday-i'm-at-"work" post:
For years I have seen incredible graffiti along the tracks as I commute to and from Chicago.
Thru the freight yards out in the western burbs, where I see graffiti entrenched cars that roll all over this great country....
and every roadway that my train rumbles under there is interesting graffiti - the concrete structures provide a perfect blank canvas for artistic talent.
And for the record, Susan's Snippets does not encourage vandalizing. I believe that if you are that gifted - you should paint on canvas and sell your art....
and if the price is within my very small Snippet's budget...your art I would buy.
