PB and J #2

PB&J #2

PB&J #2, oil on linen, 24 x 36

In a recent survey when asked about Peanut Butter and Jelly preferences 36 % say strawberry jam is favorite (grape is 31%); favorite bread is white bread (54%); favorite type of peanut butter is smooth (56%) and a whopping 80 % like their PB & J with the crust left on the sandwich.


This painting reflects 3 out of 4 of the top choices. I’m fond of Apricot jam, wheat bread, Crunchy (!!!) and crust on. How about you?

I came across this Felix the Cat Crayon Box  while engaged in my never ending search for vintage toys. The colors of the box and the pencils screamed out “Paint Me!” so I did. I don’t know if any of the pencils are original to the box but I don’t really care.

This Trompe  L’oeil shows a box of colored pencils manufactured by the American Lead Pencil Company. These were called School Crayon Boxes although these are obviously pencils. Felix the Cat is painting up a storm!

By the way, Felix is one old cat! He first appeared around 1919 and is still going strong!
