i’m jealous of joël penkman

What is it with me and food paintings? I love them. So much. These lovely paintings {egg tempera on gesso board} are the work of New Zealand born, UK based designer/artist Joël Penkman. So scrumptious! And now I want two popsicles. Oh, and I had to include this, because I had it when I was little:

Ah, memories.

{ps. Do you like food? Do you like art? Well then you should pop back here tomorrow for my new weekend series! I know… I don’t usually write on the weekends, but I had to make an exception for this. See you tomorrow morning… oh, and bring your coffee!}
