This and That


After the calendar, I decided to search for more candies and interesting labels. Do you know how hard it is to find interesting candies in regular grocery stores and c-stores. I finally found an import store. The lady bugs are chocolate, not sure where from. The milk n honees and mars are from Italy. The lobster candy looks like from Russia and I am most curious about what kind of candy that will turn out to be! The bananko also looks Russian. Loved the herding cats label and it is from South Africa. I hope you enjoy.

Funny you are rendering in your art, the graphic design art sold commercially and yours is so much more lively - so much done commercially is boring now and concocted to stimulate some far reach of our brain to "BUY, BUY, BUY" - you captured what truly pleases and intrigues the eye - BRAVO!

Nice painting. Actually, Bananko is from Croatia, just like me. :)

Thanks for everyone's comments! Thanks, also, for the heads up on the Bananko being from Croatia.
