The groundhog didn’t see his shadow this weekend, promising us some warm spring air soon. But, you got to be careful relying on groundhogs, pretty sure I’ve been tricked by their forecast before. Never mind about that over-sized rodent, for now we have a fabulous shadow display that can’t be ignored.
The one dimensional world of Eiko Ojala from Tallinn, Estonia hosts images comin-at-chya. Capitalizing on the full potential of shadows he enhances the shapes and characters as pop out illusions. Many of the pieces that are in a scene reflect his quizzical take on our universe. It’s a delight to dive right into his work fooling us as we reach out to touch.

Allison

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
