I came across this while surfing the internet. I thought it was pretty cool for a painting of a balloon dog to win second plqace.

It is painted by Laurie Grunin, and will be on display at The Charles Playhouse in Boston through December 2007.

Betallic / Betallatex 2nd Twister Contest

Congrats John Christianson, for taking first place in the second annual Betallic/Betallatex's twister contest.

His
"Fluffy Jr." sculpture is very well designed. I like his use of different size balloons to give the sculpture a sense of texture and cohesiveness. Too often if I use one one size balloon to try and make a complicate sculpture, it comes out looking slightly off, because the proportions are off.

I really like the face and the way the balloons follow the contours of a cats face. I also noticed the the use of purple under the eyes. It really brings the cat to life.

Great work John.
