The X-Ray

Oil on canvas, 18" × 21"

October 20, 2021

This picture was inspired by at least three things:

  1. The Seinfeld episode where George's dad falls on a pasta sculpture of Jerry and has to go to the proctologist.
  2. A compilation of x-rays of strange things in people's butts. It's a real thing!
  3. "Before the Shot" by Rockwell (below).
