Now you may think I'm stretching it a bit calling this 'Artful', but here in Texas we take 'Welded Wonders' like this 'Smiling Jackass' as 'Serious Sculptured' Art.
Especially when it is displayed, tagged and declared as such right over the 'Kiowa Art Gallery' arched doorway as ART....sorta!
"LIFE is an art...not a science"
Have you heard that before? Who said that...or something like that? I was pretty sure it was not a Kiowa or the 'Welder Ass Artist'. As it turns out it wasn't even a Texan who spoke that bit of Life Philosophy. It was Victorian Era British author Samuel Butler. Do you reckon he is spinning in his proverbial grave over his famous quote used to promote Wild West Welded Wonders and the like?
From what I have read and was required to study 'Back In The Day', there's not much that would set Samuel to Spinning. I'll leave it at that, and if you want to explore Ol' Sam's philosophy of life, you know where to google. Which in a round about way brings me to the last of my August Alliterations...Muleish Musings.
Forgive me for what surely must seem a bit vague and unrelated to the August Alliterations of this post. Just know that I am Well, Muleish as ever and Cherishing these last days of August.
