Post No Bills

Okay, so here's the deal.

I go to the DeYoung Museum
in San Francisco for the
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to view the most amazing
exhibition: "Girl with a Pearl
Earring - Dutch Paintings
from the Mauritshuis".  It was
incredibly inspiring, and my
creative juices were flowing
prodigiously as I start my
drive home through the city.
Passing through North Beach
(yes I was lost), my eye was
caught by the stenciled words
"Post No Bills" sprayed on
construction walls fronting a
store front under remodel.
Sprayed many times.  Many
times.  So many times, there
was no room left to post bills.

So upon my return to the
studio, what little inspirational
nugget am I most excited to
explore following my trip
through the marvels of
Northern European
masterpiece paintings and

Yep, you got it.
