Bottle rocket. 5x7 acrylic on board.

I was amused by this; July 5 I went out to cut the grass and found this large rocket expired in my yard. The stick pointed directly back at a good friend's house a block away, and knowing my friend there was no question about his having celebrated the 4th with enthusiasm. I put the rocket in a vase with some fake flowers.
