Remember John Hinckley the guy who tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan? Yeah well, apparently he isn’t happy that people only think of him as the guy who tried to kill the president.Hmm, well I always thought of you as the nutter who was trying to impress Jodie Foster, if that helps? Anywho, Hinckley, who resides in a mental hospital, has been dabbling in music and painting and is frustrated by the public’s perception “I’m an artist. I’m a musician. Nobody knows that. They just see me as the guy who tried to kill Reagan,” Hmm, yep, pretty much!
Hey Bearman, can you do that with your fingers? Check out what artist David Kassan can create on his iPad using the brushes app. I can’t even do that on my etch-a-sketch!
OK Loons, I left the best till last, introducing the “Something to Crow About Cow” or as I like to call the Cock and Bull! This golden cow was designed by artist Ella Jackson-Walley and can be found grazing under a tree outside Margarets Forest.
Glitter, clover and a great view, what more does a cow want? Acer the Fresian was designed by well known artist Robert Juniper for the 2010 Margaret River CowParade. She can be currently found watching the comings and going from the Jahroc Galleries.
There was as much fun in finding this friggin cow as there was in interrupting people eating to photograph it. Guernicow was designed by artist Jo Taylor for the Margaret River CowParade and can be found mingling with the patrons of Gnarabar.
Jo Taylor – Inspired by Picasso’s habit of moving limbs and adding bits in unusual places, rather than the depiction of the civil war destruction of Guernica.
OK Loons, you might not have a chance to read what’s scribed on the Cattle Chosen ( Yulika) cow so I will give you my Friggin Loon version. Many moons ago, when Western Australia was pretty much a hell hole and settlers were pissed at being given land that was a nightmare to clear, the Bussell brothers arrived from England to try their luck. They agreed to take up land in Augusta in the hope of setting up farming land. However, it turned out to be a friggin nightmare just trying to clear the tall timbers, let alone trying to grow anything. So when their homestead burned down and their friggin cow, Yulika, did a runner they decided to move to a property in Busselton (yes, eventually named after them) 60 miles away. When they arrived and began setting up home who should they discover grazing on the new property? Yes, that bloody cow Yulika AND her calf. So the Bussells decided to call their new property Cattle Chosen.
This cow was designed by artist Louise Elscot.
