Pardon the Pun

It is only two weeks (yes, guys that’s only 14 days!) until Valentine’s Day. The fabulous 14th of February when we have a chance to express our affection to our cherished ones. I think I’ll probably write a bit more about my thoughts on this subject on the actual day but suffice to say that I am so grateful that myriad Jewelry stores, car manufacturers and Hallmark have been so thoughtful in reminding us of this celebration since the New Year began. Nevertheless, I wanted to make a post related to this today for a couple of reasons:

Firstly, I was still thinking about my previous post concerning the great work of Kevin Abosch. I had been mulling this around in my head for a few days and then suddenly had the thought to try something similar myself. “Ah, but how to make this unique?” thinks I, as I ponder the situation.

It was when we were in the kitchen last night and my wife asked me to make up a salad to accompany our dinner, and I was absentmindedly thinking about Valentine’s Day and what was the best way I could show my affection in the next fortnight (pretty advanced planning for me, in actuality), that I had one of those so-called “moments of inspiration”. Now, my cerebral pun-engine is always turning over in the back of my head (probably due to having been raised on a diet of British comedy, not least the Carry On films) but this time it leaped to my consciousness and delivered a classic (to my mind). So, I scurried to my basement studio (aka an ironing board with a tote lid covered in black material underneath a large LED shop light), stood on a chair and created the following image:

Lettuce Be Together
I also created one as fine art (i.e., without any text) in true homage to Mr Abosch should anyone wish to have a large leafy print adorning their home 🙂
