"Roller Skates and Grape Bubblicious"

Acrylic on Canvas


When I look at this painting, I see space and sky, but the colors keep triggering my memory of grape Bubblicious gum, with its grapier than a real grape taste. Our daily summer routines in the 70’s had one required uniform piece…roller skates. Whatever activity we were doing, we did that activity on skates. When I visit my childhood neighborhood and see the hills we skated down, I truly wonder how we didn’t break bones. Sometimes we would scrape together change and skate to Bell’s Grocery. I remember getting bubble gum and staring at those red, white, and blue Rocket Pops. It was ultimately more about the juicy colors than the tastes for me. Mmmm red dye #40….

This painting is a signed, one-of-a kind original. It is on stretched canvas and is painted around the sides, so no framing is necessary. Price includes shipping in the continental US.
