Natural Graffiti

Today’s experiment:

Today, my experiment combines my love for fire hydrants (Fire Plugs, Concentration, What Luck! Fun with Pipes)  with my recent fascination with graffiti. The fire hydrant itself is a cast iron work of art. Placed in front of a white brick wall in an urban setting this hydrant could have provided an apt foreground for some amazing graffiti. In this case, however the wandering ivy adorns the white brick canvas.

Here is my sketch:

Another metaphor fits this composition: music. The horizontal lines of the bricks are the staff for the ivy notes.
