Enhancing “Rolling Surf” art car – 4

Siren-mermaid-withskulls

…one cannot overlook the power of the sinister in our current culture.  Remember, Ben Franklin’s proposal of the turkey as national bird was turned down in favor of celebrating a carrion-eating predator.  Today we find skull imagery everywhere, rescuing designs – like in men’s clothing – from being judged as nelly, cute, femme, lightweight, and inconsequential.

Now I’m gonna do what I’m gonna do.  Just saying, if a skull or two doesn’t hurt the big picture, I might just toss them in as insurance against #unintendedjudgments.  Also, a hint of the sinister might open the door to shipwreck themes.  Hmmm.
