    How fun and absurd, John. I could look at this and find things for hours. The birdy taking a ride on the derriere of the balancing act is a hoot. Wonderful, classic YOU.

  • Hi Frannie, Inspiration came from a combination of reading about the Theatre Of The Absurd and Dadaism and the storybooks which I often to read to my kids.
    Btw.. Good to see you again. Cheers John D
