This is kind of a strange, silly little painting, but I’m putting it up here anyway.  I was in Fort Lauderdale by myself earlier this year, and I sat at a sidewalk cafe, looking at the beach, with only this salt and pepper shaker and a rum punch to keep me company. After a while, perhaps under the influence of the rum punch, it started to seem as if the salt and pepper shaker were on vacation at the beach and I was kind of a third wheel.

So I told them to get up next to each other and smile, and I took their picture, and then I went home.
