Thus, something new has sprung up in the painting world. The renowned artist, Richard, at this blog posting has painted in something that I see, but he swears he didn’t put there. He has created a painting with four trees entitled, “Deep in the Forest” and I see a critter at the base of one of the trees.
At the time of this writing, he hasn’t acknowledged seeing what I’ve seen, so I either got a-hold of some “wacky-weed” without knowing it, or my vision has deteriorated. With his permission, I am going to try to use photo manipulation software to crop and point out somehow the parts that I see that gives an impression of a critter standing at the base of the tree.
Until I accomplish that, I’ll let my readers look at it to see if anyone else sees the mystery critter. To me, it looks almost like a miniature donkey. It is located at the base of the left-center tree, the rump of the animal is more in the foreground with the head to the back and to the right, and there are two downward strokes of paint at the rear that appear to be somewhat thin legs. Towards the “head” end of the critter a pair of ears are visible to my fertile imagination and to the right of the shortened head of a donkey is a single eye in a lighter color.
So, let’s see if anyone else can see the critter that I do before I get the marking of the photo done. That will probably be tomorrow, as it is getting rather late for doing it this evening.
Don’t start by looking close. Look at the top picture without clicking on it so that you have a distant looking image. That is where I first noticed it. The second photo shows the critter right at dead center in the image.
I guess instead of “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”, we’ll play “Pin the Donkey on the Painting.”
