Painting Post:

The following is an oil I did entitled 'Mugshots on grilled cheese sandwiches - new trends in religiosity'. I completed this in about a month early this year.
Again, like most of my paintings, this one is 48 inches long and 36 inches wide. This is meant to be a commentary on the current trend of finding religious icons in grilled cheese sandwiches and selling the same on e-bay for thousands of dollars... What were the seller and buyer thinking? Reminds me of a fad that happened about 10 years ago in India when stone idols of Ganesha (a Hindu god) suddenly started drinking milk from devotees cups... This sure is an opium for the masses...
