I admit it I love the old toys that remind me of my childhood....which was some time ago. When I was a kid they introduced Mr. Potato Head and for those who don't remember.....it was a bunch of plastic parts like eyes, ears, noses and hats which had a little plastic stake attached to them....you simply got a real potato and stuck them where you wanted them. I came up with some really cool combinations and remember the smell of a rotting potato to this day! You should never leave a dressed up potato under your bed for more than a day or two.....just sayin'.
Decided to pay my respects to Mr. Potato Head the other day in the studio, this was so much fun.
To begin, a little collage and paint on watercolor paper.
Mr. Potato Head image added and beginning to paint.... I like to add lots of colors in small doses to the image.
Here's to you Mr. Potato Head.....hope to do Mrs. Potato Head soon.
