MoZaic~

Jimi Hendrix mosaic by artist Ed Chapman.
This portrait was made from over 5000 guitar picks! It was recently 
auctioned & sold for £23,000(about US$37,000), benefiting the UK Cancer Research. 
Amazzzing...isn't it? Would love to do something like this when I grow up+older
and have more spare time on my hands! It beats quilting or crocheting or Bingo games!
Somehow I've been thinking about 'getting older' lately...perhaps because I am 
literally getting older today! Yup~ everyday & every minute we all do get older, yes?
My thought for the day?! ~LOL*
What's yours today???

~XOXO*

I think they do this with the help of computers and it isn't as hard as it seems anymore.

In a hundred years we'll all be dead, so who cares about such a small detail as getting slightly older by the day :-)

It's beautiful....are you getting old because it's your Birthday? I only age one day a year! If it is Happy Happy!

Caroline said...

OMG...this is too awesome! My thought for the day: Live it up...life is too short! :)

Cindy Ellison said...

Len♥reEverM♥re, an amazing piece of artwork, who could ever imagine the detail with guitar picks!

All the work was worth it, that was a generous donation to cancer research.

Don't totally "grow up", keep some sense of silliness!

You have such a classy blog!

Serious coolness and I was wondering what those were!
Hopefully we get older and learn something new every day (like the existence of this cool picture right!)

Happy birthday, dear friend Lenore! I apologize for being a day late with my birthday wishes but for some reason it just didn't sink in yesterday when I read your post. Forgive me! I hope you had a wonderful birthday celebration!

Tracey said...

That's an amazing piece of art!

I've been thinking about getting older too ... in the context of what I should really do with my life (I think a career change is going to occur very soon).
