Where art imitates the everyday

Cindy Gimbrone, in her blog, talked about seeing the mundane in a new light. After reading Cindy's blog, I looked around my house. What could I see in a new light? Then I saw it in the morning light. It was an object I had seen everyday for a very long time. It gave me inspiration. Here is the object.

What is it, you say? It's my dog's toy. Now, the result of my work on the torch with the toy at my side.

I actually like the bead. I think I'll call it Carousel.
Now, I'm off to find more things that I can see in a new light. I never would have thought of the dog toy for inspiration if it wern't for Cindy. Thank you, Cindy!

How cute! I love the brights and the multi layers. Did Spike try to play with it yet?

Spike would swallow the bead in one gulp. The toy is actually much bigger than the bead. He likes the toy b/c it squeaks! The bead doesn't.
