Chocolate Fund, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board
While doing research on WWII propaganda posters I came across this poster for the American Chocolate Fund. I knew it HAD to be included in a painting.
The American Chocolate fund's goal was to send 1000 pounds of chocolate EACH WEEK(!) to the American Expeditionary Forces in France. Wow!
This Trompe L'oeil includes the poster along with a Hershey's Chocolate Bar in a World War II era wrapper.

Beach, 24 x 18, oil on cradled board
I wanted to do a Beach themed Trompe L'oeil and as I was gathering up objects to paint I grabbed this old wooden ammo box for the background. Perfect! It gives the feel of weathered wood that compliments the vintage pin-up postcard
