Dear Diet, It's Over...

Medium & Finishing
  • Getting rid of these veggies is the yeast he can do!

    Dear Diet, It’s Over.. portrays that special time in a dieter’s life when they feel “glazed and confused” about what to eat next. Our intrepid toy backhoe driver is helping the roughage off the shelf, while making room for more donut-y goodness.

  • The dietary Dear John sticky note was created in the trompe l'oeil style, a visual illusion where the painted subject looks real. When I add trompe l’oeil elements to paintings, people often lean around to the side of the painting to see if there is really something stuck to the canvas.

    Lighting here is strong and shines from below to offer dramatic, sharp shadows. I particularly like the geometric shading on the carrots.

    Other details

    I’m not really sure what this vintage toy is supposed to be; my best guess is that it is vintage trencher with backhoe and shovel. Antique toy buffs out there: I’d love to hear your thoughts on this delightful old toy.
