My Sense of Humour

Man, I would really like to own one of Cape Town artist Francois van Reenen's sculptures (which he describes as candy-coated cyanide bits). They appeal to my sense of humour.
Monster Love
Puppy Love
Night Swimming
Singing In the Rain

The Conversation
And my favourite:
Shy Girl

Lovely! So whimsical and they do, as you say, raise a smile :)

love these sculptures. wish the surfaces in my home weren't such stack magnets. can't leave one clear for half a day.

eilandkind - They are cute - I so love the Shy Girl one, as I can vaguely recall having done something similar when I was a very little girl!
kendalee - They are quite funny, although some of them definitely are more on the 'cyanide' side, I think! (I didn't show those.) Also, I find some of his drawings and paintings rather disturbing!
editor - Haha - stack magnets! That is a good term. Whenever I see an empty surface, some dark side of me whispers: Fill, fill, fillllllll .... to Le Husband's great annoyance.
bronwyn - Yes, isn't that dog too sweet? Also the dog in Night Swimming!
