Peculiar Picture #4


This illustration was created for my Royalty Free CD Business Fundamentals, sold through Getty Images. Most of the sixty illustrations on the CD have sold and been used for magazines and book covers but this one has yet to be published. It seemed like a good idea while I was painting it but perhaps it’s meaning is too vague.


Does it mean anything to you? Do you have a suggestion for a title?

  1. "Hitting the wall". Is there a companion "The glass ceiling"?

  2. I lack the clever title gene, but this reminds me of something that happened at the large truck manufacturing company where I worked. One of the managers had fallen asleep at his desk in his cubicle. Some co-workers quietly moved some partitions into place and closed off the door to his cubicle. When he awoke, he found himself complete closed in. I guess you had to be there. It was funny at the time, but it loses something in the telling. :)

  3. "Boxed In" comes to mind, although I don't think it's truly descriptive of the scene.

  4. The expression on the guy's face is precious... almost like he knows the firing squad is ready as soon as the wall's finished.

    BTW - did ya know the canvas was crooked when you painted it?

  5. "Walled in" is what I think of. And I agree that it has to do with entrapment.

  6. A modern retelling of The Cask of Amontillado? The Cask of Mediocre.

  7. Here's my title: "Now, where's my ladder?" LOL at Linda's story - that actually IS pretty funny.

  8. I'd call it: "What Really Happened to Jimmy Hoffa."
