A lot of people assume that I come up with a caption idea first and then build an image around it. Actually, that's generally not how I do it. Usually I sketch out an image that I like and put the image on canvas. It's only when the whole thing is practically done that I actually start to think about what the person or persons are likely to say given the overall feel of the painting. This time I have a caption idea that I like, though I will probably have to pare it down a bit given the constraints of how much text can reasonably fit on a canvas. So I'll take you along this process and you can see how the project progresses with me. Fun!
