I was invited to display food related paintings at a special event for Dine Out Vancouver at Pink Elephant Thai. None of my existing paintings were food related, so I decided to create new pieces. After a lot of contemplation on what to do, I chose to mix eggshells and rice into the paint rather than paint food as a subject matter.
At Pink Elephant Thai restaurant, I displayed the paintings like dinner settings with black napkins and chopsticks. It was a fun night, with music by DJ Jeremy Slattery, and live painting by Bill Higginson and Olga Rybalko, as well as great food!
