Source Material


I've been mining the antique store for source materials for the paintings I'm working on, and I've been CHARMED by 1950s era cookbooks. I love the faded color printing, and I absolutely love the idea that the 1950s era housewife might need to be instructed on the types of cuts of meat or the uses of cheese. How fabulous! These have migrated into the underdrawing to be posted later today. Hope you enjoy a little slice of the studio!

I love it. Have you ever looked at Betty Crocker's Cooky Book? They reprinted it recently.

SO I can't wait to see the new Republican VP pick and her piled-up hairdo join one of your pile paintings! C'mon!
