i collect small toys and trinkets and place them around my studio for inspiration. A few weeks ago I was slicing a tomato and it rolled off the counter on to the floor. I thought about the plastic toy soldier on my shelf and a painting was born.
A few days later a jar of olives inspired the next painting.
The last painting came from looking at a toy soldier’s pose and imagining the biggest thing he could carry.
I’m looking forward to more snack food inspiration to add to this series. Send me a message if you have any funny ideas!
