Fork In It
You know how much I like the Coffee Gallery Backstage. The wizard behind the Backstage is Bob Stane. And this is a picture of Bob Stane's fork. Bob dreamed of giant piece of flatware placed at an actual fork in the road. His friends made it happen. It is Pasadena's quirkiest public artwork, found between Pasadena Avenue and St. John, south of Bellefontaine and the snooty tea shop. The fork stands, ever poised, as kind of a tribute to light-hardheartedness, and flatware, and dreams.
My painting is nearly as busy as Pasadena Avenue. It really wasn't quite finished, but here you have it.
