A spudtacular image for the cook with a sense of humour
Eye have a peeling that you know a kitchen wizard with a zany sense of humour - maybe it’s you! If so, The Chips are Down might make a perfect gift. (You can thank me tater.)
As you may be aware, one of my favorite subjects for still life work is a weathered toy truck with the bed filled with produce. The contrast between the metal and organic forms is a delight to paint. The Chips are Down started innocently enough - a potato and truck composition - but as soon as I started to add the toy, the mischievousness of the scene was increased all of a spudden.
Hard spotlighting and sharp shadows heighten the drama concerning the fate of our potato-y friend. The weathered wooden base provides an intriguing contrast to the plastic toy components.
The truck featured was made by the Wyandotte company and is a favorite prop of mine.
