Say Cheese by Elizabeth Hahn

The Artwork

This imaginative acrylic painting depicts an acrobatic mouse balance atop a thread spool and cheese tub. The mouse uses all parts of its body in an attempt to juggle colored breakfast cereal loops, which despite all efforts, seem to be flying in all directions with many of the morsels landing outside the picture plane and onto the painting's black frame.
