Trouble

This cut and paste collage is titled Trouble at the Coffee Shop. This makes me laugh.   The background is an altered photograph of mine.  The bodies of the bird boys are paper dolls from the 50s maybe?  I added the bird heads for fun.  Lots of story possibilities with this one.  When we lived in Minneapolis I witnessed some scenes like this at some coffee shops- though not with bird-headed boys.

  2. Thanks Brian! The photograph is from the dining room of a house we rented once with friends on Madaline Island in Lake Superior. A 1940s Cap Code style.

  3. Total fun! Great background. The 50's were great, but I don't remember the styles much. I guess I was too young. This piece makes me smile.

    1. Thanks John- I was born in 1952- so most of my growing up was in the 60s.

  4. Very cool! Love the contrast between the neutral background and the more intense bird boys.
