A recent reworking of a less than successful painting.
14" x11", oil on canvas.
Pookie was my favorite puppet character from the Soupy Sales Show.

I like the title.
I am not finding the upper half correlating in any way to the lower half, but that may be me or the intent of the work. You have a very recognizable style and I always enjoy seeing your posts.

I think it's very interesting and rather beautiful. Reminds me of Boccioni and other Italian futurists.

Thanks Jon. The top area started as a hat but ended up just being part of the painting.
Thanks raeburn. I always liked the furturist paintings (but not their politics). I aim to balance oddity with beauty.

I fondly remember the Soupy Sales. I loved doing the Soupy Shuffle back then.

I am not sure I am getting enough to make a connection to the title and the painting but I always love your style and color choices. To me the canvas seems unfinished but done enough to keep me looking for what it's all about. Love your work bschart :wave:

Thanks Dave.
The title was to entertain me and intrigue and confuse the viewer. (Still, Pookie is there and is telling that good one).

The painting started out this way> Then went through many changes.
