I recently finished a particularly fun commission of 3 paintings: variations on my Mr. Peanut, Mr. Softee and Uncle Omelette portraits. My client loved the dark humor of the originals and wanted something very similar but with a twist. We decided to have Mr. Peanut shown in front of his own shop window on the Atlantic City Boardwalk eating a bag of fresh roasted peanuts. For Uncle Omelette we thought he could be actually cooking eggs as a street food vendor and we have Mr. Softee eating an ice cream cone in a night time setting with strings of lights instead of bunting behind him. These were three of my very favorite portraits and it was such a pleasure to re-visit them with this new set! Prints are available in my shop Curious Portraits.
