Last night I had a bit of free time, so I have created a gallery of the paintings that have appeared on my blog over the last few months. The link is on the right of the blog under the title "Gallery of Paintings". You can check here anytime to see new paintings that have been posted--in case you have missed any. I am also still working on my web-site, so check back in a couple weeks to see some of my larger works and works on paper.
Anyway, if you have been following my blog, you will know that two days ago I decided to start a series of paintings on the theme of junk food. I decided to start with the twinkies. I guess they looked so good to me sitting in the wrapper--who could resist. I was forced to take one bite (for art's sake)--and then had to resist temptation with them sitting there on the still life stand for two days. I finally threw them away this morning after finishing the above painting. I nearly ate them, as they were still soft after sitting out in the air for two days--boy, there must be a ton of preservatives in those twinkies!
Anyway, if you want to see the paintings that are coming, look at yesterday's post, where I put a photo of all the junk food I have in my studio. I have decided that I will post the "Twinkies" painting on ebay, so if you are hungry, and have strong teeth, feel free to place a bid. Here is a link to the auction <click here to see auction>.
The next painting I am working on will be "Red Sno-ball", which I think is the most interesting. For this series, I have decided that I will take one bite out of each pieces of junk food and then paint it. Tomorrow, I will write a bit more of the background on why I have taken this approach?
Keep painting, all the best. Sixtyminuteartist
