The title plays with the stereotype that starving artists are desperate for subject material. Instead of the typical fruits and goblets, I went for balloons and paper bags. It's not the subject that's necessarily important, it's what one does with what one has. Approximately 48x36 inches.

Stunning. Gorgeous. And those colors... *gapes with mouth wiiiiiide open* brilliantly done, with all of that amazing dimension. Bravissima. :D

Cool---I like the jumble of objects in the center of the painting.
