...or just sorta odd.
Maybe it's a little bit of both, in a Swedish-humor kind of way.
I made this picture for my mom for Mother's Day (in case that wasn't clear enough). This door-to-door salesman with a sun-for-a-head goes around town with his rain cloud buddy, Pete, selling his sunny outlook on life. He's probably the type of guy that tells you to "keep on the sunny side of life." Why I chose him to send my greetings to my mother isn't exactly clear to me yet.
She got it in the mail yesterday (even though I did next-day shipping last Friday - obviously that worked out) and I think she found it as a nice surprise. I suspect my mom was more impressed with the fourteen dollar frame from Target than the actual picture, but that's OK.
