Toronto artist David Irvine adds unexpected elements to thrift-store paintings to create a whole new way of looking at the subject matter. Among his offbeat additions are scary movie stars.

Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th drops in for a visit at this charming woodsy cottage.

Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre helps a local gardener collect some flowers for her indoor display.

Michael Meyers from Halloween takes a moment out of his frenetic day to enjoy the seasonal foliage.

Slimer from Ghostbusters goes haunted-house hunting.

And Jack O’Lantern shares a fun, frightful tale with a lucky pair of picnicking siblings.

To see more of David Irvine’s imaginatively innovative works, check out his Etsy.

Eyes on the prize

Posted: August 22nd, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

American athlete and Sac and Fox Nation member Jim Thorpe competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics. On the morning of his events, he discovered his shoes were stolen. Luckily he found two mismatched track shoes in a garbage bin. One shoe was too big, however, so he threw on an extra sock. He went on to win two gold medals that glorious day, in decathlon and pentathlon. Take a lesson from Jim, and don’t let setbacks keep you back. Keep on keeping on!

It’s that time of year again. All that’s left are memories and mud. We will treasure the friends we’ve made. This never-to-be-forgotten snail says a fond farewell to its summer camper counterpart at Audubon Sharon, a wildlife sanctuary of the National Audubon Society in Sharon, Connecticut. Until next year, forest friends!

Happy Friendship Day!

A TIME TO TALK

When a friend calls to me from the road

And slows his horse to a meaning walk,

I don’t stand still and look around

On all the hills I haven’t hoed,

And shout from where I am, What is it?

No, not as there is a time to talk,

I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,

Blade-end up and five feet tall,

And plod: I go up to the stone wall

For a friendly visit.

—Robert Frost
