CANDY

Paintings in oil paint of the classic American candy: Hershey's Kisses, butterscotch, peppermints and gum drops. The wrappings, cellophane and foil, are more interesting than the candy itself, with their reflections, transparency, translucency and brilliant color.

Oil painting, for me, is the best way to explore this unexpected beauty.
