Sweet & Sour

"Things sweet to taste prove in digestion sour." --Shakespeare.

A quick one for IF's "Sugary" theme. First time in ages I've done one specifically for IF... and possibly the first time ever that Pepto Bismol Pink has figured so prominently in my palette!

Acrylic on text (from Foods and Household Management, 1915) on canvas, 4x5"

I was feeling like that cupcake face on weekend
after some over the top drinking with friends.

Pepto Bismol is magic too!

Thanks for the heads up on the breadstick issue. It has been resolved. Now Firefox users can vote for Senator Toast too! :)

fenstalker said...

Yay, you saw Senator Toast! And you're right, the opponent has attacked his patriotism and got him in quite a jam. :|

Question - Can you tell me more about the Darwin image from your site? Was it published? Was it sold? Can I buy it? :)

He looks like he's in a bit a pain there! Could it be too much sweets....
You've captured the feeling perfectly.

This would make a great illustration in a folder for diabetics! the green and Pepto pink really set each other off!

I love his little legs! I tell friends that my weekend eating habits are based on the theory of consequences based learning :)

neilornstein said...

It is a form of camouflage. Like moths that emulate their toxic cousins. Cupcakes that look sweet will leave behind fewer descendants.
