Come on, people. Give it up for pumpkin pie! And whipped cream! Whipped cream AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE! This is an original 5″ by 7″ acrylic painting, on illustration board, The paint of the whipping is thick and textural, giving it a Wayne Thiebaud sort of feeling. The colors are warm and autumnal. It is, in a word, luscious.
And the pumpkin. Let’s talk for a second about gourds, folks. Better yet, let’s see what this guy has to say about mother-loving gourds. [Rated R]
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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?
