"Vincent van Gogh used paint. Auguste Rodin worked in bronze. Larry Moss shapes air with the use of balloons. Moss's unusual art has been displayed in 12 countries on four continents. His achievements have been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records and Ripley's Believe It or Not!

Renowned in his field for his large and technically challenging sculptures, Moss is also an experienced teacher of his art and author of several books on ballooning."

American Gothic is Unfinished

The artist needs to add black make-up on the faces and also paint the fingernails black for a contemporary "gothic" look.

As is, it "wood" be more accurately called "SPRING in American Gothic's Neck".

What is next, "American Gothic" bobbleheads?

Popcorn People

When they are put in a pot to be boiled, they are Man and Pa Kettle.

It looks like the popcorn couple could use

some botox injections. However, they would pop when the needles were inserted. Their skin looks extra smooth--do they use corn silk or something? I bet they really have to take care of their skin in order to prevent getting the ultimate boil.
