Still Life with Lunchbox

It’s that time of year again and Lunchbox had a fantastic idea for his Halloween costume – dressing up as a piece of Polish Pottery! Sounds like a brilliant idea, right? Unfortunately he did such a great job with his costume that Heather Sims, notorious hoarder of all things Polish Pottery, SNAPPED HIM RIGHT UP and added him to her collection! Now Lunchbox is in yet another fine pickle, I have no idea how he’ll get out of this one. But you know what? He still has his lunch-pail (maybe Polish Pottery, but still a lunch-pail nonetheless) and his diaper, so all will be ok. And as you must know by now, when you have your lunch-pail and your diaper, what more do you really need?

I made this painting for EBSQ's "Ripped Off" show. I decided to "rip off" a painting by my friend Heather Sims ( known for her Polish Pottery still lives) called “Polish Pottery LBXI,” and her Polish Pottery series in general. Her wonderful paintings can be found here.

I'm currently offering a print of this painting on eBay for the October Nibblefest contest. If you're interested in bidding, please click on Lunchbox to go to the auction.
