    Had to look closely, is it the face of some shopsoiled renegade clown, a fairground dilapidated bashed up bumper car, or the mode of transport for Fuzzy Freddy ever it is, one thing is for sure it’s freekin’ aIright by me.

    Love Russ’ s comment about the clown…I saw that too. Ted your work is unique and the questions you put just riveting..I always saw each of the three to be so subjective that a distinction seemed to be a matter of degree if at all…Your image to me is mostly in the realm of legend. ( Very clearly larger than life) Love it!!

  • Yeah… but… Izzit Nostalgia? Fable? History? Or… or…. RETRO? It is so hot to have you join into this group Rose. What a band of artists all in one spot. This is definitely, um, neat. Thanks a lot.
