Gutter Flotsam


I'm calling these photos "gutter-flotsam" ... little bits of green and red and yellow in the gutter out front of the studio. These flecks are mixed in with the little mounds of leaves, feathers and branches. On closer examination today I think I've solved the mystery as to what it is. I recall one day last week when my "upslope" neighbor, Perfection Glass, had their front windows cleaned by a professional crew. What was once a group of festive wreaths painted on their windows, is now flecks and specks of color in the gutter.

It looks like a paper collage. Love the bright green against the brown and gray.

I thought at first it was leaves. Nice touch of green color in the middle of January.

At first I thought it was paint. Just goes to show that the beholder can find art anywhere, almost.

They told me that they spray windex on the painted glass and then these festive holiday scenes scrape right off (I think the painters just use tole-paint acrylic).

Funny!! Dave and I had our heads down close to this gutter Sunday trying to figure out what it was. Mystery solved! Thanks Laura
