Muse

At the grocery stop
In downtown Pittsburg
I found my sure fire muse
A can of tomato soup

    1. Thanks Brian. I hardly have time for groceries, but I can manage to do a BBQ pretty well once in a blue moon.

    1. Funny indeed. But for Warhol, it was highly profitable and out of this world!

    1. Dear Sir Hank,
      This was a tribute to the legendary pop-artist Andy Warhol who hailed from Pittburg. Remember those psychedelic multi-coloured soup cans?

  5. I read that as 'sure fire nurse', not muse! LOL :) Same thing, maybe...

    1. I agree the nurse might have been better. But looking at the outcome, the nurse might not have liked it!

  8. And people bought it--that's what gets me. But, hey, there is beauty all around!

  9. The whole Warhol focus was on 'mass media' a term no one had thought about before the 1960's. It came along with color TV. Andy just represented the social condition of the time. It wasn't beautiful, it was life. It was the first time regular people considered advertising influencing their spending, (Andy the muse). Campbell's soup was eye opening back in the day. Thanks for sharing this, Ninotaziz.

    1. It is strange how Andy Warhol's mind worked. He opened our eyes to the fact that it was no longer the age of 'Victorian' houses, Impressionist paintings and grand formal dinners.

    2. I still love formal banquets and paintings from the past.
