Tongue and Cheek Look at The Art Elements!

If you studied art in high school or college art programs then the Elements of art were drilled into your mind.  I know that mine was.  Repetition, Color, balance, emphasis, dominance, line, pattern and so on.  So on this artist date I had taken myself to a flea market deep in the South, and I mean deep South.  The Southern Culture is hard to miss in these photos and the almost circus like activity of the flea market with buyers and sellers testing their skills on each other to make a bargain. 
Though making fun of the use of art elements, they are behind every decision I make as an artist whether consciously or not.
