Peanut Butter and Jelly on Toast
Peanut Butter & Jelly on Toast | 5"x7" | oil on hardboard
It's one of my favorite things in the world. Peanut butter and jelly on toast. I've seen a number of other artists tackle peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a subject, but toast is my preferred platform for the famous combination.
I used a reference photo I took on a sunny saturday morning as I prepared my breakfast, with the warm sunlight skimming directly across the plate of toast. I'd like to think that sunlit feeling comes through in the painting.
I picked strawberry this day, but I think grape may have been a better choice. Perhaps another time.
Interested in buying PB&J on Toast
