Mr. Potato Head


Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

Ever since my daughter got her Mr. Potato Head, I have been dying to paint it. It is so iconic to me. Maybe there will be a series here...maybe.

Absolutely brilliant Michael! I love it! I reminds me of Toy Story...

(Mr. Potato Head rearranges his facial features crazily) 'Hey. Look, I'm Picasso.'

Perfect! Its a fabulous painting of a classic toy.

I just bought one for my 3 year old grand daughter for her birthday. I wanted to paint or draw it too but had to mail it. I need to buy one for myself! :)

Oh, are you from Rhode Island? These things are still alive here in a very big way. And by that I mean when you go to the supermarket there's a 5 foot tall one by the door, when you go to the bank, Dunkin Donuts, they're all over the place! I thought of painting them, too - you go ahead and do a series!!!!! Very cool

This is great! I did something similar a couple of years ago, and I love seeing how you tackled the same subject. So fun!
