Do people know that pinecones could look like this?
I never knew that the top (bottom?) could be so round and flower-like. I picked it up to do something with it, thinking that it's some kind of special mutant one. I showed it to John and he made it like that is how all pinecones look like when i expressed my amazement at it. So i told him, No, actually, it is a pineapple. A baby one. And guess what? He believed me. ahahha. let's all point and laugh at him. heheh.
But he was kind of right though...it's not really a mutant one. I found these all over the ground yesterday! I forget that pine trees got their own blossoms in the springtime, too.
Below is the same pineapple cone from the first picture, which looks more like the pinecone i'm familiar with. Can't believe it took me so long to see the other side of it.
And guess what else? Those letters (letters for June) you see in the background are not fitting the way i want them to on any of the black series paintings i'm working on! Too BIG. After all the cutting and sanding and painting them. Now still gotta go and make some more new ones. This time i'll do some measurements.
Or should i make a bigger panel to fit them fat letters? hmmm...
