Can (still life)

4 Dec



There are all kinds of chocolate syrup out there and even Hershey’s has a wide variety but none better than the stuff that comes in the can with the yellow lid.  As kids, my great-grandmother would keep us a couple weekends a month and this is what she’d always put on our ice cream.  There is a flavor so deeply entrenched in my memory and in happy feelings of being with grandma that I cannot imagine another chocolate syrup complimenting my ice cream.

I find I’m painting a lot of simple items lately that connect to deep memories for me.  I’m going to keep riding that wave as long as the inspiration to do so keeps coming.
