Red Hot Candy Stars

May 2, 2009

Oh my goodness, I must have forgotten to show you this one. It was made with thick translucent paint skins. I love the lush chewiness of translucent paint skins. Like hardened jello, Red Hots, or Twizzlers maybe.

    Hah! Glad you like it Vikki!

    Funny — I was just thinking about you this minute. Thinking about your advice for stepping up my armadillo removal program. It may be time for Phase II !! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is so good that it is cruel again. My projection! Very critical, even political. (??)

        (whispering): the five pointed star is a logo of the super powers in past and present: China, USA, Sowjet Union. Some of them are covered with blood.

        Eva, your point about a red star is well taken. I can see the creepy imagery that could conjure up. No sinister intent here. This is all about cookies and candies.

    I’m really liking your paintings. I never would have thought that cupcakes, and candy could be an influence to an artists creative process. I guess I have a lot to learn ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really like the candy theme.
