Caricatures

Inspirational Quote:
A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth.
Joseph Conrad

A few years ago, I decided to try creating caricatures from my collection of photos. I had so much fun, I didn’t know when to quit. Although some people find caricatures of themselves offensive, I mostly used photos of myself. However, a few family members gave me permission to use their photos, so I posted them as well: My husband and son, and two of my sisters-in-law.

Stand for something, even if you have to stand alone. Often times, the one who flies solo has the strongest wings.

Wildlife is something which man cannot construct. Once it is gone, it is gone forever. Man can rebuild a pyramid, but he can’t rebuild ecology, or a giraffe. Joy Adamson

So, my brother loved chasing the hens, picking up whichever one surrendered first and petting it like a cute little puppy. The old rooster loved the hens, too but not in the same way my six-year-old brother loved them. So one sunny afternoon as Kenny chased his favorite hen, out of nowhere came that rooster from hell, jumped on Kenny’s back and began pecking his head like a jack hammer. Kenny screamed bloody murder, my mother came running out of the house with a broom, and I stood paralyzed watching as mom nearly beat my brother to death before the rooster finally flew off his back! Whatever happened to good entertainment these days?
