December walk by the sea with Human Artist Vending Machine's art

This is one of many prints and cards from Brent Leopold.

I shall be placing them around town so that curious people may pick them up as "found art" / free art by Brent.

But today way so sunny in Greece that I had to take a drive out to the seaside shack

and soak in the sunshine! 'Took these chaacters along with me, too.

They enjoyed sunning themselves on the rocky beach.

Lots of marble rocks here, tossed in the winter by the rough waves.

They also spent some time in the rose gaden, checking out the little bloomin' buds

under a really great Greek Blue sky!

Tomorrow they shall be in the city be found by whoever wishes to find 'em!

Whoa. Not only a GREAT artistic participation project from Brent, but the photo journal of this blog makes me sore for traveling.  Kat, you're so lucky to live amid so much history and beaches, and museums, and blue skies!

These cards and prints have Brent's website stamped on the back. And it is his "found-me-art" (free art) project. I gave a few to young people who were strolling on the seafront today and told them to write an email to Brent ...let him know how they like his art. Three others I placed by the museum entrance desk where people can find them and I asked the guard not to throw them away! 

I kept my "favorite" one ...they are hand printed and cut into various shapes on stiff board. Really fun "finds"!

Here is "buddy" passing by our revolving cafe - communications OTE Tower in the distance:

It would totally make my day to find some like this! Last week I found a post-it packet that some teen had made into a stick figure flip book. It was fantastic and luckily they never showed up to claim it!

Your "foundmeart" is a great project, Brent.

Tomorrow, if it is a nice day, these guys go to the big city!
