Since I originated in New Orleans, it stands to reason that there's always a bottle of McIlhenny's Tabasco sauce on our table at home. The other day, I decided to do a quick painting of this constant friend.
This got me to thinking about recognizable brands, like Heinz ketchup, Smucker's jelly, and Wonder bread, and how fun it is to raise them to new status by painting them. Much as Andy Warhol did in his day.
I wrote to the wonderful artist Carol Marine about this, and she thought it would be a good idea to make this project the weekly challenge for Dailypaintworks. Click here to see the challenge, and to see what other artists have done with it. And maybe think about entering the challenge yourself! I'd love to see what you would do-- what brand deserves artistic recognition in your life?
