Holy Toast and Tentacle


I have some cool neighbors with a bunch of artwork hanging on their carport wall. Among the artwork was a really sweet empty triangular frame. It screamed for something to be put in it. One day I snuck up and took the measurements of the frame and, over the next couple of weeks, the triangle frame stewed in my brain. I had a ton of random triangle shaped doodles but I ended up painting this. I replaced it on their wall and waited. It took a few days to realize it was there. It was fun to paint something just for fun in such a great shape for some great friends. I'm sure the symbolism is obvious, so I won't try to explain it. It needs a really artsy title. Any ideas?

That's a cool thing to do for a friend when you've already got a plate full of work to do. (but also a fun release for you and an excuse not to do the work work).

I like your title of the blog entry for the title of the painting. And I must be pretty dense (which I know I am) but I don't get the symbolism.

I'm with Julie on this...not as obvious as you may think. Please explain for us "slower" folks. I think it's a fun piece. You francises sure are great neighbors. Even the non artists ones!

Toast-tacle? Is that singular or plural? :)

Um... that's the best story I've ever read. Now I don't just want to draw like you- I want to BE like you.


As for the title: Still Life in Green

I think you should title it:

Behold, the power of TOAST!
