More Road Side Art

May 13, 2011 by Rieshy

The inspiration?  Klimt's The Kiss.

The actors?  Two heroic trees in the middle of a pasture bring culture to the local cattle.

My 11 year old was not happy with me for stopping the car to take this picture.  Evidently being told to watch for traffic freaks her out a bit. Which I found surprisingly funny.  I do so enjoy motherhood.

Actually, I think the trees missed out on the tone of the original painting; it's vampiric.  In contrast the trees seem to strike more of a "mother embracing a child" chord. 

Oh well, maybe the next time they get clipped by the electric company they can try for a Mary Cassatt.
