Ok...you got us all "interested" again! great work! My take on this is.....I teach in a therapy pool. I know a lot of people who would love to trade in there neck and spine for a new one. The fickle finger of fate is pointing to no more pain, I'm taking charge...trading in for a new...... The crows are symbolism for a couple squacking over... take charge of your health!!.................

Bob Orsillo replied:

Excellent joy this is great! ;)

Whittier, CA - United States

Excellent art and stories ... Although the first thing that popped into my brain was "I have a bone to pick with you." Wiki says ... A "bone to pick" is thus a subject or issue that is expected to require considerable discussion or argument. A similar phrase, "bone of contention," meaning an issue over which two people argue, also dates back to the 1500s and refers, appropriately, to two dogs fighting over an especially choice bone. ;- }

beautiful description in the title such as compelling piece on many levels you could frame this in many contextural levels but i just prefer to enjoy its sheer beauty magnificent work Bob!!

Bob Orsillo replied:

Thank you Gloria!

Sudbury, ON - Canada

I think the crows are really dissapointed of the lack of meat! One skeleton appears angry and the other a constant complainer - I am certain I can think of something better as I think about it - Great work Bob!! FV

Bob Orsillo replied:

lol You might be right about Paul :)

Cambridge, ON - Canada

Marvelous artistic creation, Bob!! This is my story and I'm "sticking" to it: The two crows and two complete skeletons had moments earlier been square dancing. One crow, who had clearly heard enough babble from the female skeleton who is shorter with wider child-bearing hips and apparently talks excessively, tripped her. As she falls apart, her male partner who has full physical control tries to save what is left of her. As she natters at him for his failure to come to the rescue, crow #1 says "I didn't do it" as crow #2 chuckles. Perturbed male skeleton must decide female's fate. Two light sources show that there are two sides to every story. Love it, Bob!! v/f/t/+1

Bob Orsillo replied:

LOL you have got me on this on this one Hanne. Great story.

Yumi Thank you!

Mena, AR - United States

They are having an argument over who pays the electric bill... the shadows indicate two lights are left on. The crows left the blue light on and the super skinny guy and his incomplete buddy left the magenta one on ( no doubt vain attempt to give the illusion of flesh tones to the bones which was totally negated by the low angle of the warmer colored bulb) Such a wasteful consumption of energy has already caused them to sell off the furniture and roosts to pay last months bill..and ,as a side note, the bird to the left ..is color blind which is why him and his shadows are more monotone. A sad but true tale that should encourage all of us to turn off our lights as often as we can. *click*

Bob Orsillo replied:

LOL Fantastic Nina!! I'll never forget to shut off the light again.

Lakeland, FL - United States

Yeah, but look who's laughing, look what you have started, I think the crow is saying "I did not break the skeleton, look at me when I'm talking to you." So much fun Bob..

Thank you Mary :)

Pueblo, CO - United States

Some of these comments are hilarious! And I agree with Odd that it's both humorous and macabre. In any case it's fascinating and I love it. It's innovative. And the crows are an absolutely necessary component to the story (whatever that is). The colors are great, too! v/f

Bob Orsillo replied:

There really are some great stories - Thank you Lenore

Easton, Ma - United States

Like, Odd ... I'm not sure about a story but the in my head I hear "Fickle Finger of Fate Award" over and over and over:)

Bob Orsillo replied:

LOL Thank you Lainie

Kamloops, BC - Canada

I think the skeleton is pointing at his buddy and rolling his eyes (if he had any) to let us know that this guy, even though he is missing most of his parts, just never shuts up. The crow has the same problem with his friend but is smarter than the skeleton and is ignoring him. Like water off a crows back. Lol. Great work, Bob. f/v

Bob Orsillo replied:

lol I love your story - Thank you! Theresa

Thank you Negoud :)

Vildbjerg - Denmark

I'm not certain that I can make up my own story for this... although one will probably come to me while I try to sleep soundly. :-) I can't stop looking... it's so fascinating... the combination of humor and the macabre is wonderful.

Bob Orsillo replied:

:) Thank you Odd!
