Still Life with Potato Salad

Today I learned I fit into the huge pair of jeans that used to be too big for me. I guess that's a good thing because now, I don't have to buy new jeans. So, I spent the money on candy and the ingredients to make potato salad.

Today I also learned, just because you can eat a bowl of potato salad that's bigger that your head, doesn't mean you should. I guess I just figured if I got the big jeans on I might as well fill them out.

My tummy full of potato salad also inspired this illustration. "Still Life with Potato Salad" was drawn on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper then colored in Photoshop.

Do you love big bowls of food? Do you want to leave some love for the new bigger me?


  • You don't have to live illustration friday so strongly... lets hope today's topic will be slim!

  • It has always been my philosophy, that if a little is good, a lot is better. And dont you know that the the true essense of goodness cannot be crammed into a small package. IT JUST DONT FIT!!

    Thats why the supper size portions Rule!!

    And the mystery of a pair of baggie pants! WHAT"S THAT GUY HIDING?

    Hey! Love Ya! Mean it!

  • I'm loving how the light from the window is illuminating the potato salad. Just beautiful. Even more beautiful would be a large bowl of Lucky Charms illuminated by the light from the window...oh, I think I'm salivating...

  • I wish I had lime green cupboards... my favorite big bowl treat is POPCORN, with a cold cola and 3 pieces of Ice, in a glass not a cup.... where do you come up with this stuff? It boggles the imagination!

  • caroline: Ha! :-)

    daniela: TUNA! Blah... :-p

    janet: Too much more! :-)

    merlinprincesse: Tons! How big do you think I am?? :-p

    scarecrow: Hmm... I may be under the influence of the same philosophy? :-p

    marina: How come lettuce is never a comfort food? :-P

    joy eliz: Ho-hos! Back in the day I used to dig the suzieQs. Mmm... big gooey mess. :-)

    bozena: Thanks.
    I don't get the Lucky Charms thing. Gorky loves them, my brother loves them, everybody I know loves them. I think the only thing good about them is the little sugar marshmallows. How about a bowl of those eh?

    princess pepper cloud: Yeah, the cupboards look great. I had my doubts when Gorky brought home the paint, but she was right.
    I love popcorn but with no butter.
    It boggles my mind that I put up a post about making, and eating too much potato salad, then 10 different people from all over the planet take the time to comment on it.
    Way cool but strange when you think about it. :-P

    carra: I didn't realize I had so much influence!
    Hmm... what evil things could I do for my own amusement?
    Bwhahahahahahahaha... ahem. :-P

  • It must be hard to find a bowl bigger than your enormous head. Ha ha!

  • valgalart: Do you and your dog share the same bowl? :-)

    holly: :-)

    jonpaul: Bah! Look who's talking fathead.

  • Mmmm... I love potato salad. Although, I do not think I could eat a bowl that was bigger than my head. Maybe half my head. :)

  • I'm having visions of big, head-shaped bowls...and laughing at the same time. What fun you are.
