Top of the World

Top of the World.jpg

“Top of the World" was  created in acrylic and oil. The painting combines a childhood memory and a touch of irony.

 

The title based on  pop culture lingo insinuates things are going smoothly and working very well.  Ironically, the  vintage toy top in this painting does neither, which is exactly what I remember about tops like this as a child.

 

It spins about as well as a drunk ballerina wearing steel-toed boots. Which is about how well the top in my memory would spin, but the thought of being at great grandmas playing with a poorly spinning top still brings a smile to my face.
