Interesting.......you've got quite the dirty mind.

I think I understand the bacon strip and the eggs, but what is with the parsley and the offset nipple?

Dali said art should be edible. Sure enough, he has foods he realy likes scattered throughout his many paintings; a broiled pork cutlet here, some fried bacon there, bread, eggs, etc. I don't expect anyone to eat raw bacon, but breasts are better raw ... and the parsley is what it usually is, a garnish.

I came on an interesting technique in painting this ... pouring. The breasts are just poured on the canvas. The areolas a smaller poured volume, and the nipples carved out of wood. The offset nipple is supposed to enhance the breast/egg ambiguity; with one nipple wandering toward the bacon, you're not sure what's better to suckle, the bacon or the breast.

The resemblance to eggs is clear enough, and I now want to begin a fried egg painting using this pouring technique. I can't come up with any irrational/related objects to include yet. I was considering a rib cage exposed roasted chicken carcass, but that's too food oriented. Have to come up with some chicken/egg theme, preferably one connoting time, to convey the 'what came first ... ?' cliche. Any suggestion is appreciated. Interestingly, Dali's droopy clocks were originally fried eggs draped over a limb; eventually those eggs became his famous clocks.

I don't think my technical skills are quite up to that Andy, although the concept is valid. Dali could probably create an image of an egg & a chicken jerking off that made perfect sense.

My wife actually gave me the perfect setup while she was doiung the dishes tonight. She said she & her ex-sister-in-law were once discussing why they both disliked eggs so much, and her sister-in-law said it was probably due to the psychological association women have of ovulating every month; hence, just the word egg is enough to conjure up menstruation, pregnancy, nausea, and a host of other intimate biological events to the point of ruining one of the finest food items in existence (IMO anyway). So the theme I'm going with is fried eggs on a plate, but instead of with silverware or salt & pepper shakers, test tubes or some sort of in vitro fertilization or cloning lab equipment; more within my skill ability.

I'll hold back the jerking off mother & offspring concept for later.

In Hemingway's "Islands in the Stream", there is a long conversation between the main character, artist Tom Hudson, and his bartender.

The dialogue begins with the bartender requesting a painting of waterspouts in the ocean and segways into a horrid scene of the oceans opening up into hell and swallowing up everyone while they drink gin and watch.

I wish I had the energy to type the whole thing; you would like it.

Sure thing.

Funny you mention that. When I was about 20 I lived on St. Thomas (to get away from the insanity of Texas). As is usually the case on small islands, I soon got bored. One night I went to the local movie theater and "Islands in the Stream" with George C. Scott was playing. I was floored. That was one good movie. The sound track still makes my eyes all moisty.

I've never read the book, love to read that dialogue.
