The little things



Often what are considered the simplest things become the most interesting subject matter.  In this case, popcorn.

I was eating some lovely warm popcorn and started studying the shape of one of the popped kernels.  They are quite interesting shapes and I thought it could be challenging to paint it.  I haven't had time to do so yet, but I've played around with some digital images to get me into painting mode and give me an idea of where I want to go with this. 

I am thinking something large.  A macro shot of a piece of popcorn.  It might put me off popcorn forever, but I somehow doubt it.  And popcorn is good for you - provided you lay off the butter and salt.  Ok, just a bit...
