A Big Delight

A Big Delight, 6 x 6, oil on cradled board

I'm fascinated by artists who paint on small canvases. Every once in a while I decide to give it a try.

I love Junk Food and Hostess Cupcakes, "A Big Delight in Every Bite", are something I indulge in on occasion. I love the shiny chocolate frosting with the white squiggles, the creamy center and the airy cake. The different textures in this snack food make it worth memorializing in a painting.

One Eyed Jack

One Eyed Jack, 8 x 10, oil on board

I love vintage toys. I can't get enough of them. These are some toys from my collection. Wooden Blocks, spinning tops, playing cards, chess, and marbles are all toys or games that have been played with by many generations of children.

I recently bought a few diecast cars and this Chevy is one of my favorites. This is another in my 'Toys in a Box' series

In addition to the car, I've included a key and vintage blocks. All of them are in a wooden box.

Flight of the Bumble Bee

Flight of the Bumble Bee, 12 x 12. oil on cradled board

Yes, I know these are Honey Bees and not Bumble Bees but I like the title. And it fits in my my current Flight Themed paintings.

My favorite playing cards are the Jokers because they are so varied and this one with the bee is one of my favorites.
