Art In The Schools on Ocracoke..... Out and About - Critters & Creatures

It all began innocently enough.  I was twenty-seven years old when Theresa, my friend since Kindergarten, and I were on a road trip to The Beach.  We stopped in Breezewood, Pennsylvania for a drive-thru dinner, and we gave into the temptation of buying a talking chihuahua at Taco Bell.  "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" became our mantra for the season, and he became our mascot for that trip, and many more.  We photographed him EVERYWHERE!  This type of fun continued with my son's Flat Stanley Project in elementary school, and most recently with my frequent travel companion, Mr.  Bill.  It just seemed logical that I should honor this tradition with our Recycled Critters and Creatures!
