Roof art/shingle art

I have posted both the following photos before...maybe more than once.  These are drive-bys taken on the way home from Shipshewana. I think I confused some people and they thought the tractor was painted on the roof in the post a couple or three days ago.  As you can see, the picture is made by using different colored shingles.  Sorry for the length but thought you might enjoy seeing them.


I could almost design a quilt from this.   Can you imagine keeping your wits about you enough to get all the shingles in the right place.


I wish I could have got a better shot of this.  I have another view but it is very blurry.


The above is simple, and was taken on the way north...but still someone was very talented to do this....

The following are from google earth...the first one of the horse I saw from a distance...much too far away and through trees...I only caught a glimpse of it....


Isn't it marvelous?  It is the one that led me to looking on google earth/maps.


I did not see the one above or the one below....


We actually passed the rainbow/unicorn one, but I just missed it.

Those are amazing! That would be a real brain teaser to do.

These are awesome! I had no idea they are roof tiles. I thought they were painted on. Wish we would pass one!

Decidedly rural themes the artists have chosen (except perhaps the unicorn). You don't see anything like it here apart from the occasional initials of the builder worked into the brickwork.

Thanks for these!

Susan Zarzycki said...

I find them amazing also. I think they must have been "painted" by a very talented roofer/artist. Expensive I would think.💖

Nancy Chan said...

Amazing roof art. These people took so much trouble to show their creativity.

Ann said...

Yep I thought they were painted. This makes them even more amazing. These are real works of art.

Have a happy day and a happy week ahead!

I love these. I told Larry about your post and told him he needs to use his drone to photograph some!

It would take a very talented person to create those pictures, but the results are stunning.

Sandra said...

I am a huge fan of Google Earth! Wow. And I'm the one that thought they were painted on there I didn't know they were shingles that makes it even more amazing than paint and it would take a true gift to be able to do that with the tiles. Your blog is the only place I've ever seen roof art

Ruth Hiebert said...

That must take real skill and a lot of time to get the right shingles in the right place.

Kodak said...

Cool!Anew art form - shingle art. I have seen things painted on a roof, but not actually made from the tiles or shingles.
