Peanut Buttery

Peanut Buttery | 5"x7" | oil on hardboard

I love peanut butter. My wife, Denise, prefers the creamy variety (Jif), but for me chunky is the only way to go (preferably Skippy). There was a time in our marriage when Denise purchased only the creamy variety, and I silently ate it. Until one grumpy day when I lashed out and declared my desire for chunky. Ever since that day we've had a jar of each in the cupboard. Anyway, perhaps you can see that I opted for the chunky in this piece.

This painting has simple lines and geometric shapes with a big blob of peanut butter to balance the composition. The late afternoon light was coming through the window and I liked the shadows that were cast. I think there is also something interesting about the whole thing being shades of white and gray with the exception of the peanut butter. That lovely, yummy, chunky peanut butter.

Inquire about purchasing
