Art is alive

Last week, my sister and I viewed some Art Cars in the Presidio, and we were captivated by one in particular that was covered with rubber lobsters and fish. The seafood moved and sang, as those silly Billy Bass fish are likely to do. Today I found the car's website, run by a group called the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir. Enjoy the videos, to get the full effect.

Another site I ran across today was a story about a fascinating restaurant in Riverside, California, where the owner has gone all out to make the most fabulous mosaics (for lack of a better word) out of bottles, Barbie Dolls and more! It's not often that we find ourselves in that part of the state, but it looks like this is worth a special trip.

If you are feeling crafty, you may want to pick up the crochet hook and make some vegetable monsters!

It's art like this that makes me glad to be alive.
