World Beer Festival, Bicycling Snake, Prince

this weekend i took a road trip with some friends and went to the World Beer Festival in Durham, NC. it was awesome and made me forget i have a blog. i'm making up for my lapse in memory with two posts today.

when i was asked to paint Prince i was tempted to just paint his symbol but he's too distinctive looking for me to pass up doing an actual portrait.

well, if you have no arms or legs you can't wear a vest and/or ride a bike. i guess i just explained the joke. this reminds me of a quote from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure where Pee-Wee's talking about a dream he had and he says, "i'm all alone. i'm rolling a big doughnut and this snake wearing a vest," before he gets cut off. i bet the snake in his dream was on a bike too. i imagine if a snake saw this painting...and had rational thought...he would hate it and hate me for making fun of something he has no control over and he'd pretend like he didn't want to do those two things anyway but secretly all snakes wonder what it would be like.
