Brand New Still Life

Well now! Here’s a brand new painting that I just finished. It’s new. I just finished it. BRAND NEW!!

Uh, where was I? Oh yeah, it’s a bunch of vegetables from my garden. AND I painted them on top of produce stickers (that I’ve been collecting for a good two years now… do you have any idea how many of them it takes to cover a 16 x 20 canvas??).

Wait a second, home grown veggies on top of produce stickers? Irony? Juxtaposition? Political statement?? YOU DECIDE!!

Go ahead, click it! Zoom in! Look at those stickers!

Anyhow, it was a lot of fun painting overtop of the horrible mound of wrinkly stickers. Especially because the way I painted it was supposed to deny the fact that it’s on such an uneven ground. I love me a challenge.

It’s called, “Home Grown.” Is that the ten-metre diet? HA! ZING!!

    Haha, I wasn’t keeping track… but longer than I thought. I did have the sick pleasure of pulling an old-fashioned all-nighter to finish it off…
