A painting I found amusing at the Ringling Museum. I bet if you knew who those two guys on either side of the banner were this would be a very witty commentary.
Fascinating image, all the more so when you know some history of John Ringling. I really like the reflected EXIT sign, the artist should have included that.
One of Mia’s friends (I’m sorry, I forgot your name!) at Ringling. We were trying to do one of those photo trickery things but were undone when we realized wings come out the back, not the front.
They knew how to paint lemons in those days.
