Found items art project
As promised here are some photos of my “Flying Gurard” entry for this year’s Pirate’s Point art contest. This was the first fish we saw upon entering the water this trip and it was the first that the dive master has seen in that area.
Everything has to be a found object except for the hanging hardware, glue and paint that are provided to everyone in the art cabinet. The candy cane is removeable and added to match the resort’s Christmas decor – it is made from a letter “C” that was found washed up on the beach. The body and head are from sponges & the fins are palm fronds. The eyes are cut out of a long-abandoned little kid’s Mickey mouse sandal found on the shore.
