Peanut Butter and Jelly

Peanut Butter and Jelly by K Henderson

Peanut Butter and Jelly, 30 x 40, oil on linen

Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches are among my top three favorite foods (the other 2 are ice cream and pizza)

Not only are these sandwiches delicious, they are also beautiful. The texture of the bread, the smoothness of the peanut butter and the shine and luminosity of the jelly all combine to create a feast for the eyes.

Monopoly Game, 12 x 9, oil on cradled board

I often like the box the game comes in better than the game itself. The instructions in this box are dated 1951.

I included the red dice because I like the way the light shines through. And I’ve always been fascinated by the detail in the little shoe.

Which is your favorite Monopoly playing piece?
