My artwork- a Lazarus Beetle…

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/work-of-art/

I am not an artist. I do not have the ability to take up a brush, and paint a beautiful painting.  I do not have the ability to weave words into a beautiful poem.

But the past few months I tried to bring some beauty out of death… My old VW Beetle was dying a slow death- Rusting in Peace.  It did not move anymore.

This was it then:

Before we started to raise it from the dead…

But my son’s 18th birthday was nearing, so we tried to bring it back to life…

And after a few weeks it is better. I know, not really art… but we used paint in the hope to make it better than it was…

Yes, it is not art… yet… but it is slowly getting there- the 4th generation of our family behind this car’s steering wheel, that is art in my eyes!

So maybe this could be art?

It is nearing the finish line, but it is not there yet- watch this space soon…
