What happened was I just kept eating. There was a Halloween lunch party and I couldn’t stop myself. I ate it all. This was over a year ago. It had been a while since I’d painted anything and I wanted to give it another shot. I’d already picked out some new canvases. They were 18″x24.” I had yet to complete anything as large.
When I got home that day, I couldn’t believe how much I had eaten. I felt like a total pig. This would be my inspiration. I was going to paint something that looked the way I felt. That was how Hostess was born. I was quite pleased with how he turned out. He would spawn an entire series. Stick around and I’ll introduce you to some more.
