Creative Confetti

Poem: Untitled

Big momma
put on a pot of slick bones
with biscuits in the oven!

We got any molasses?

Big Momma - Grandmother
Slick bones - Pork Neck Bones
Big Momma’s homemade biscuits and a bowl of molasses - PRICELESS!

Acrylic & Marker on board

This is one of my many attempts at art. I did this piece in 2001 while sitting in my apartment on a Saturday afternoon. I was playing one of my favorite cds,

Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live [LIVE] and this was what I came up with.

I could skip the pork bones but I am daydreaming about biscuits now. There is a place not too far from me that does proper soul food and now I'm thinking about honeyed yams. Yum! Oh and great pic!

Yeah, The Love Shack! That's going to be my club. You'll be able to find it right next to Eddie Murphy's "Boom Boom Room."

MMmmmmm - You know I don't live close to home. Why do you always post about the food I LOVE and MISS. :(

Loved your artwork. Hated the mention of food.

Just kidding - it brings up some warm memories of home.

i love the poem and the art. i can see the art in mocha hut or some other cool spot. rock it renaissance man. don't hold back. let the art from the love shack out so we can sop it up like that biscuit and molasses.... ha ha... i'd use honey ... keep flowing, sharing, creating, and best wishes on the submission. i totally loved the bohemian cavern photo and ramsey lewis. my daddy loves him... hence me too. paz, ananda

I love to eat so you will occasionally see food on this blog. Thanks!

Thanks! I'm just going to keep on letting it flow. I appreciate the encouragement.
