Work In Progress: Piece Of Cake

Our friends Elizabeth and Potato had their wedding at our house earlier this month.  They are both radio DJ’s  who host a show Monday nights on KPSU called Attack of The Killer Eggplant. As we were cleaning up after the wedding I noticed some white painted wooden discs sitting  in the trash- these had been supports for the various layers of the wedding cake. They are meant to be thrown away, but it occurred to me they might be excellent panels to paint on, so I rescued a few.  Here is the first one I’ve been working on, a fisheye view of the Ira Keller Fountain covering half the visual field, a flat equivalent to the spherical paintings I’ve been doing on bowling balls and world globes:

Logrolling In Our Time

The writer Bart King was nice enough to include a link to me on his site, so I naturally recommend his many fine books, including the most recent, The Pocket Guide To Mischief.

Those of you planning to welcome Trick-or-Treaters should check out Bart’s appearance on the local morning show AM Northwest. His suggestions can make the whole experience so much more evil. Click on the picture labeled “Halloween Pranks.”
