“’68 Pineapple,” Day 22 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"'68 Pineapple"

Possibly the most delectable fruit of them all. The noble, but prickly pineapple. The colors here are nowhere near the intensity of the original, with its hot-pink background and magenta block motif. Good thing I’ve got a new scanner, which I’ll be hooking up soon. At any rate, this one pops, like so many pills in the Valley of the Dolls.

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?

Coming soon: the perfect shot of espresso, Vernor’s ginger ale, a deconstructed Blimpy Burger, Cafe Du Monde beignets, and a few holiday favorites.

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