Deborah McLaren’s still life is one I purchased at the PERSAD Celebrate Life Celebrate Art auction at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh last May. The other day I sat at the table, looked up and saw Steve’s additions to the decor. He has been purchasing RITZ crackers frequently since I bought the painting, subliminal influence? I wrote to the artist(http://www.deborahmclaren.com/) for her permission to post the image of her painting along with his props. Steve’s fun additions- the unexpected sight of them in front of the still life- I laughed out loud! How to make life fun!
