Thrush Holmes / High Life / 2014

For a 2nd helping of Thrush Holmes:

3 pounds psychedelic exuberance
10-12 cans spray paint
                  (if doubling batch, use fire extinguishers)
Nudes, flowers, vases, pineapples, bananas, oranges
4 cups swagger
Dash of machismo
Lg. spoonful drunken romanticism
1 sprig abstraction

Mix equal parts aggression and bling
Combine into smears, splatters, and drips
Sprinkle a little Matisse, Eminem, Dostoevsky, Sonnier, 
Prince, Gauguin, Sonic Youth, and LeBron
Whisk until frothy
Bake at 500°F for 7 hours until fluorescent and crispy
Garnish with neon, to taste.
