May Theme Day: The Creative Artisan

Theme Day has come again and this month's theme is "The Creative Artisan." With the warmer weather there have been people outside capturing the new colors of Spring. I saw this artist who was out painting and instead of washing his brushes he just wiped them on his pants. Maybe it's a new kind of wearable art.

Ha! I would sometimes do that when I was in art school. I had some very "artistic" clothes by the time I graduated. Great shot, Randy!

The next big craze .. started in Santa Fe.

He found a way to put some colors in his jeans! I like that! :)

Perhaps he is selling his pants for more than he bought them for...:-)

The quirks and techniques of a creative artist! Nice capture!

I still have trouble with the word artisan: I thought it was a very different and opposite thing from artist!

Sharon said...

And I'm always so careful not to get paint on my clothes. Who knew?

Judy said...

Great shot! To be creative you have to be messy :)

Excellent take on the theme. Like it!!!!!

Michaele said...

There is more than one work of art going on there for sure : )

Judy said...

I like this style! This could become the new fad.

Lowell said...

Oh, thank goodness. I've seen lots of examples of art by artisans, which I could never duplicate, but if these pants indicate an artisan, I could do that with no problem!

That's great! A creative detail representing the freedom of art

And why not? :-)

RedPat said...

I love this, Randy! I have jeans that look just like that although they also have holes in them.

Jack said...

Nice interpretation of the theme. If you're going to get some paint on your pants, might as well go all the way.

Sandy said...

I love it! Happy May Randy!xo

Randy, that is a perfect shot for "creative artisan" theme. I had a friend (painter) who used to wipe her brushes under her arm... It was a funny-looking t-shirt indeed!

Bises,
Genie

CaT said...

i could never do that.... but it looks not too bad, actually!

Buck said...

All of the painters I know 'dress' like this! The paint is more important than the clothes :-) Nicely done.

becky said...

I do the same thing w/ clay.

Traveling Hawk said...

yeah, and he gets a new pant evertime!
