“MOXIE”: Day 19 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days. (SOLD)

"MOXIE"

Moxie. “MOXIE”?? MOXIE. It’s the iconic soft drink of Maine, and they say you’ve got to acquire a taste for the stuff. I don’t know about that, but I’ve known about this beverage (at least about it’s existence) since I was a kid. It was referenced in old Mad comic books from the 1950s, I think. Also, you can see old ads featuring the stuff as peddled by Red Sox legend Ted Williams. I appropriated this image from one of those.

I’m doing a painting each day this month. 30 paintings in 30 days. Being November, the Month of the Feast, the theme is Things We Love to Eat and Drink.

A painting a day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new painting du jour. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.

I’ll need some content, folks, so if you have any suggestions for good subjects, leave a comment or write to me at john@tebeau.com. What goodies would you like to see memorialized as art? What’s your favorite comfort food? Your most-loved childhood treat? The hometown food you miss most? If you moved away tomorrow, what local specialty would you long for? And, looking ahead, what other themes would you suggest?

Let’s talk about comfort food. Mac and cheese has been suggested many times, and also meatloaf. What’s your favorite comfort food? Oh, and a tip o’ the hat to Mark Garrity of Honolulu, HI for suggesting Moxie.

Thanks, too, to Michael Stern of RoadFood.com for his mention here.

Yesterday’s painting: “Banana Magritte”
