I'm fond of the Geoffrey Bennison quote that I've got copied in the column to the right. He was a proponent of the idea that one should always put "something mad on top of something very good, or something very good on top of something mad."
THIS IS DEFINITELY THE "MAD". It's out of control. What is it? It's a plaster cast serpent piggy bank (didn't even realize until I shot it), courtesy of a recent thrifting expedition.
Don't laugh!! Actually, feel free to...that was my first reaction. But now, I think I quite like it. Something about it.
