Watch Out for the Shoe (?)

This painting may appear a little strange, but it does have a story. We were driving home from the cabin and we kept seeing signs that read, “Speed limit enforced by aircraft” — or something like that. Mack was getting pretty paranoid (as if we had something to hide (maybe there’s something he’s not telling me)), so we started making fun of the sign’s seemingly nonsensical nature. 

Mack came up with “watch out for the shoe,” because what does that really mean?  I came up with “the teacup will fall.” Apparently that is not vague enough so I produced a modified version: “teacup falls next right.” Is that better?

Where does the pear come from? Nowhere really. It is as arbitrary as the shoe.

The painting before I added the pear. I was going to paint a silhouette of a shoe, but I figured that  the painting was weird already so I better go all the way.
