Tub of Love

Ladies and Gentlemen!

I have been so pleased to get so many comments on my "Soiled Toilets," the art-installation/smile-inducer that I displayed in front of my New Orleans' home! My neighbor LaSwan (Lady Across the Street Without A Name) said that she had never seen anything like it in the thirty years she has lived in our Marigny neighborhood! And, that my spectacle brought our "hood" to a new level!

So, I decided to surprise LaSwan with an early Christmas present, with my second in a series I call "Bathroom Surprises!"

Imagine how surprised she'll be when she wakes up today and sees this!

Mrs. Danvers waters the flowers.

I'm gonna let you in on a secret! The poinsettias are FAKE! Gotcha!

That way, after Christmas she can just pull them out and not lose the integrity of the display! Imagine every holiday being able to embellish the "work" with different seasonal flowers! (I also painted the lower half of her house Holly-Berry Red, over that boring beige, to bring out the red in the flowers! That could also be adjusted seasonally, but it is a little time-consuming. That's why I only painted the bottom half of the house. But, LaSwan doesn't have to know that I got tired. I'm calling it a "choice!" And anyway, "red and beige" reminds me of the Boy Scouts! And a troupe of Boy Scouts makes me think of, uh, never mind.

As you can see, Mrs. Danvers loves my latest objet, too! We are just alike! Although, I had to scold her for mistaking the bathtub for a toilet. But, I couldn't punish her because she has seen me make the same mistake a dozen times. And besides, I suppose it will be great fertilizer for the poinsettias.

As I said, Mrs Danvers and I like the same things. But, with this I had to draw the line. Press "PLAY" and see.



Don't worry about me,
VJ
