Toast Head and Lick Yum

These paintings are both done in 2019. They show the kids watching the seed grow into a ripe plum and a kid ready to bite into a wholesome butter toast.

“Kids are notorious for throwing away bread crust. And bread/wheat has been revered in many cultures as being sacred. So why not make the hard part of the bread more interesting so it will be appreciated? Similarly, if you have a deformity, why not tattoo the characters for gratitude and love on it?”

“Eating Yick Lung seeds was a big part of my childhood. It was bigger than candy. I recently wondered about all the seeds we ate and spit out in yards, if any would propagate after all these years.”
