his exhibition at Tate Modern?! I did briefly consider taking Louis there on our London trip last week. Although there is no doubt he would have relished seeing sharks and cows in formaldehyde his attention span is on the teeny side. Gallery visits with him tend to be of a whirlwind nature or have to involve a game which detracts from my viewing pleasure. So, I'm saving my visit for a girlie outing in the summer when I'll make use of a bargain rail fare and will be able to explore at a more leisurely adult pace.
To reveal myself as even more of a philistine, I'm also drawn to work that give me joy. This can happen at different levels. Sometimes a piece may evoke a bubbling undercurrent of happiness whereas another may induce undisguised belly laughs...whether the artist intended that or not.
So what was it in the Mail that took my fancy? Well, follow this link and you too will be inspired to create your very own Damien knock offs at a fraction of the price tags on the original. Sausage in a bottle anyone?
PS: All pictures today from Wikipedia. Look there for how I should have acknowledged today's pictures in this post. It's all a bit complicated. However I hope the illustrations inspire you all on this wet Bank holiday to try out some spot and spin painting of your own!
