pop art series

I've been making a series of paintings based on vintage ice cream wrappers. The more of them I paint, the more I understand about why I'm doing it. Some are from a small collection of actual wrappers my friend got in a letterpress shop, for others I found images online-- there are still plenty for sale on eBay, though it's the selecting and translating the designs into painted objects that I am after. So many small ice cream companies across the country once, producing an endless array of treats. Here are six-- acrylic on wood panels 3/4" thick, varying sizes up to 14". All are for sale in my Etsy shop.
