Part 2: Behold the Simple, Doughnut Trio
Do you ever open a doughnut box that has been sitting on the counter just to find someone has taken a bite out of the one that you wanted? Like no one would notice… who does that? One of my children, that's who. I have three wonderfully unique little boys that have the patience of a fly. Whenever I treat them to doughnuts, one of their sweet little hands is immediately in the box the second I turn around. This little doughnut trio represents them and all of their half eaten doughnuts that I am blessed with finding.
About the Collection: A Note From the Artist
The most precious memories and conversations happen around the table with a meal, a melted popsicle or a couple of slices of leftover bacon in the toaster oven. Hey, when you know you know! These meals do not have to be over the top (although I do love a gourmet dish), but oftentimes are the simplest, with the most significance.
I find that more and more I draw connections to people through different foods, flavors, and scents. When I prepare a meal, snack, or even beverage for myself or my family I am reminded of who I shared these with in the past. These memories have become more and more precious as people I have loved, respected, and cherished have moved on…or even started to grow up.
This series of paintings may seem simple, or reminiscent of pop art ideals; but, for me, they focus more on connections. Connections to people, cultures, seasons, experiences and keeping this in the forefront of my thoughts. This “plate” series will be released every Friday for the next couple of months through McIntosh Cottage Antiques.
