Tic Tac Toe was a mess. This 40″ by 56″ foam painting was colorful, but wrongly so. The smiley faces were in yellow, the mugs in violet and the grid in a mixture of the two colors, all set upon a motley background pretending to whiteness.   With nothing to lose I blanked out the ground and blackened the figures. Most of the distractions are gone, allowing the basic question to be asked.

Also, as a follow-up to a recent post, I tried to “NEWS” -ify the four cardinal letters, but the effect was problematic. So I followed the original plan with this result. The object is made of expanded pvc, glued together and painted.

I have no idea what to call this object. Any ideas?
