This piece has a bit of fun with what it's like to sell a painting as a hyperrealism artist. The small red, round sticker is an artist's best friend because it's used by galleries to mark a painting sold. While a sale is always welcome, the amount is rarely enough to substantiate the many hours spent painting detail - at least not for me at this point. So the snack size Payday candy bar represents an artist's paycheck after the sale, hence the red "sold" sticker. The background, painted a tint of money green, is oversized to make the small Payday feel even smaller. This is the final completed painting for my show, "High Definition" at McCormick Gallery which opens March 17th. http://www.thomasmccormick.com/exhibitions/104
