cookie cutter 6"x7"
I found a bunch of old cookie cutters at an antiques shop. I liked the chromed surfaces and wanted to paint one. I chose the spade because it was the edgiest one. I kept thinking of the song "Ace of Spades" by Motorhead.
I am an artist living in Northern California. In 1993 I graduated from
U.C. Davis where I took classes from Wayne Thiebaud, Dave Hollowell and Roy DeForest. I currently teach art at Chana High School in Auburn California. On this blog I have posted 1000 paintings in as many days. Lately I have not been as strict with my painting schedule although I still update this blog regularly. I want to do some larger paintings that may take me more than a day to complete. Unless marked otherwise, these paintings are for sale. Please direct all purchase enquiries to Elliot Fouts Gallery. If you are unsure about the availability of a painting, please don’t hesitate to email me.
