Bob Orsillo replied:

Thank you so much Chris :)

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! ;)

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. ;- }

Awesome Gwyn! Thank you :)

So many stories in this, fun to look at and muse, striking visually! vf

Thank you Byron! :)

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!

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:

Thanks so much Ana :)

This is very unique and cool amazing work Bob, incredible pieace you created. sup f/v

Bob Orsillo replied:

Yumi Thank you!

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.
