PART TWO: The Kodachrome of Alien Art
I sure left you hanging yesterday with my promises of mind-blowing colors, didn’t I? When you see the things I saw, I’m quite confident you will agree that it was worth the wait.
I thank all my Cycle365 friends for your kind comments about the rock formations and the bland earth tones in yesterday’s post. Ecru, in particular, seemed to be a major hit, color-wise. And, for good reason, THOUSANDS of you were impressed by the ancient native-American hieroglyphics.
Mixed in with the Indian art was quite a display of Alien art. That’s the Kodachrome stuff I’ll be showing off today. Based on my extensive knowledge of art history from the entire universe, I immediately recognized the Martian influences. Only a master of Martian artistry could produce such fantastic shapes, curves, whimsy, hidden meanings and, especially, the vivid colors. You can see for yourself in the next few pictures.
I always thought I would give up everything I own to meet a real, live Martian artist. (I’d probably do the same to meet William Shakespeare or Plato or the Coen Brothers.) Alas, while it’s true that Martians walk among us, I never thought it possible that I’d actually find one holding an open-house on the main street of downtown MY Town.
