the person that requested this painting asked for a guy and a girl standing next to each other, each holding a muffin, and underneath, the words "the muffin connection". (sidenote: i think i nailed it.) when i read that, i figured it was something cute between he and his girlfriend. ok fine. i get requests like that all the time. but he followed it up with "this will make sense to me and four other people". so it's not a relationship thing. interesting! or well i guess he could be in a relationship with four people. i dunno, i'm just glad when things aren't what i expect. or maybe it IS about how he and his girlfriend met and they told three other people the story. that would be expected. geez, this post is getting really long compared to my usual. i should just stop speculating and ask him. i'm not gonna ask him.

this is my third yin yang. the first one had the colors swapped and the second one was flipped vertically compared to this one. i didn't mean to make them all different but i think it's a pretty cool accident. i'll have to remember that for the fourth.

i just put notes where i thought they looked pleasing for this painting. i can't believe i did that. honestly, every time i see a use of music as a decorative element, i always wonder if the designer even knew what he was communicating with this language known as music notation. well i just played what i painted and it turns out i'm communicating an awful-sounding mess. sorry.
