I realized this looking at more pop surrealism, some of which like Scott Musgrove, had backgrounds based on, of all things, rococo pastoral art. And I found that bizarrely amusing, and oddly fitting as a background to weird critters, so I went wandering through rococo art history on-line, something I'd never done much of before--it's not a style I run into terribly often, and my brain had largely dismissed it as the stuff of ten million fox-hunting chase scenes. So I decided to do a really, really quick painting in the style, and it was surprisingly fun--but only digitally. If I had to tackle that in oils, I think it'd wear thin pretty quick.
Because somebody always asks, no, it's NOT because of anything to do with Kalamata or the olives, I just liked the way the name sounded.

All of your paintings are incredibly delightful. Surrealism has many different corners, and your art has created an entirely new one.
I love the shading and how real something so impossible could look
For random reasons I don't feel like explaining, I can't order prints...
off in the distance. I think it helps tie the whole image together.
