This is knot: a painting – homage to Rene Magritte

I thought I would follow up my submission to the Daily Prompt: Make Me Smile with this homage to Rene Magritte’s painting Ceci nest pas une pipe.
Its partner piece is entitled not a painting or Ceci n’est pas une peinture in keeping with the homage, since it really isn’t a painting, but as you can see is indeed a knot…in a frame…which by the way is not for sale!
Finally, this week I submitted for the first time to the Weekly Writing Challenge.  This week’s challenge is to write a story in exactly fifty words. I entitled it Knot at Home (sound familiar?) It is another homage, this one to Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, as you will see if you visit the post on my other site theotherpalette.
OKI think it’s time in the immortal words of George Burns to “Say Goodnight, Gracie”…


  1. Smiling here Andrew! I love Magritte, found Metamophosis nothing shy of fascinating, and we use George Burn’s line often with my daughter…named Gracie! Your post hit home for me and your painting is gorgeous!
