Icy blast

My silvery spray-paint series is coming along. I have decided to combine the silver with colors of various ice cream / sherbert flavors. So far I have lemon, vanilla and raspberry, and waiting in the wings are mint and strawberry.

Here are two views. Each painting is 30" H x 20" W.





Considering all the snow we've had this year, perhaps I'm inspired by memories of hot summer days cooled off with a dripping ice cream cone ... I am also a huge HoJo's fan; miss those orange angled roofs along the highway!

My subconscious must be trying to reconcile all the snow banks around here with my sweet tooth!
