Red Carpet Icons
These oil paintings feature appliances, including several Crock Pots, a toaster, and espresso machine, along with a few baked goods posing on the red carpet. The Crock Pot, in particular, was a pivotally important cook's tool. Through my research I learned it was the vogue appliance of the 1970s and I made the connection to the red carpet. Many of my appliances in past works (one included here, St. Mixer), were sainted with halos and personified in a way. This seemed to be a natural transition for me.
