The Pasta Art of Vernon Spicer

Vernon Spicer was in his 60s when he began his career as an artist. One night he was woken by a dream, "I could see something that had a three-dimensional design, one that involved me using sticks to create.” His wife suggested the sticks were pieces of uncooked spaghetti. So he started using uncooked pasta to make paintings. As the Montgomery Advertiser puts it, "this man really knows how to use his noodle to utilize noodles."

If you decide to buy one of his paintings — I think the three below are his entire oeuvre — the price is $1800. He hasn't sold any yet, so you have a chance to be the first!

The pictures are from the Selma Alabama Photo Blog, which has higher-res versions posted. Though I suspect the pasta paintings, in real life, have a 3-D effect that the photos can't convey.

He can ask for any amount he wants, that does not mean anyone will pay it. They look rather child-like to me.
