  1. Excellent detail, especially the fly opening having no closure & relying on the long under-shirt to conceal the lower body parts.
    Thank you.

    I’ve had hot, soft pretzels on the mind for a couple weeks already. Seeing this painting makes me want to make some. What a perfect warm treat on a cold fall evening. Yum!
    I’m also curious about the bread held up and in the basket. They look concave. I wonder what those are.
