When I started thinking about the challenge this week at the Three Muses - the art of disguise -I was reminded of those wonderful bodyart paintings where the subjects blend into the background. I googled and found this link to some incredible examples which are really worth a look. Suitably inspired, I asked my boyfriend if he'd mind posing for a few hours while I blended him into a background of the Milton Keynes concrete cows - can you spot him? I think I did a really good job, don't you? He moaned a lot about being cold and getting cramp and having better things to do, but it was worth all the effort in the end.... Until he discovered the paint wouldn't wash off... round about the same time I discovered just how fast I could run...

Ha! Sorry for my dodgy sense of humour. Well, you may have guessed by now that I didn't quite get around to creating a 'proper' entry but I couldn't resist this little wheeze. I may get around to my entry later in the week.


  1. So much fun.
    Wonderful idea.

  2. dank!!! i was looking so hard!!!

  3. Hmmm... I guess your boyfriend is the one in the middle...!? Very funny!!!

  4. I'm glad I read the whole of your post before I looked for your boyfriend or I might have been there until Christmas. Great idea and lots of fun and an entry is an entry so if you do a second one it will be a bonus.

  5. You did do a great job! I had fun with this-(looks like you did too)! Your new mixed media piece is stunning- gorgeous use of color!

  6. No I can't see him! But then I am not suposed to am I? but funny! Hope you do get round to it, look fwd to it

    Love Dawn xx

  7. Too funny! Thanks for the great link - cheers!

  8. We have saying here in Oz when we think we are having our legs pulled "You are having a lend of me". I like the cut of your jib, Wrightstuff. I think we are kindred spirits and fellow-leg-pullers. I really enjoyed your tall story AFTER I spent a lot of time trying to find your boyfriend!
    The picture above the cows is superb. Your artwork is absolutely gorgeous.

  9. Hahahahaha Ohh Lisa
