L'Asperge




Ok seriously this was my favorite painting in the Musee D'Orsay. I will post more but...is it just me or is the history of every painting contained in the inflamed tip of this vegetable and the countertop it rests on?

I think manet made the lump of butter painting I saw last year at the national gallery.

I am struggling with the "what next" question. Maybe a butter mountain. Or maybe a bomb? You know, shake things up a bit.

A butter bomb? Corny this is a good idea. Everything is greasy from fat. No one dies but everyone feels funny.
