Half Veggie

"Half Veggie"
oil on board, 8" x 8"

Thinking of working on a large pizza painting but wanted to try a small one to get some of the colors worked out. It's very squishy up close. The PBand J is almost finished. It is covered in paint and just needs some final details. It was too wet today to do the finish work.

 I am looking forward to jumping into some other large works for my shows later this year. I will be having a solo show at the Hardware Store Restaurant on Vashon in September and will take part in an  4 person invitational show food show at Artswest Gallery in West Seattle at the very end of October through December 15th. I am excited about both and will be starting into some new projects in a day or so.

 I am also working with Vashon Artists in the Schools program on some giant canvases for the cafeteria. Our schools have implemented a terrific new healthy lunch program over the last couple of years and I was asked to create some work with 3 multiage classes to showcase the healthy food being served. We almost have one of six canvases done. I have never painted this large before. It's a truly exciting project. I will post some of the works when we have finished.
