And a Chicken

April 9th, 2009

Daniel Pontius

Who wouldn’t want a painting of a dead chicken? I can’t quite remember where I read that what human beings have to resolve for themselves is that to live, something has to die. Being removed from the killing is always easier and cleaner. I recall someone else, (maybe Timothy Leary) said that both cows and cabbage scream–it’s just that cows are louder. 

Hopefully this doesn’t stop you from enjoying  your food. 

Here I love the dashes of cerulean and teal, and easy simple arrangement that allows your eye to circle, the yellow of the lemon and the pink of the flowers. I must be on a particular color trip lately as my little palate is similar to those of Monterey Park. As Lady Mendl said, you could design a whole room around a painting and this could be a fantastic start.

    Your passion for color and inspiration from color makes me think you should be writing a book about decoration. Ever thought about it?

    Why yes I have, in fact, a colleague and I are in conversation about it. I’ll keep you posted!
