When I set up this scene, I did not question its logic. However, I finished this painting and wondered why in the world someone would roll up a tie and put it in a bowl. I certainly never have. But maybe this painting will start a new trend. People all around the world will come home from the office, roll up their ties, and place them in available bowls. No questions asked. Next morning, get a new bowl, take out the tie, put it on, and pour their cereal.
