Painting of a peanut butter and jam sandwich on a white plate with a knife

I find so much inspiration & excitement from the effects of light as it hits objects found in everyday life such as this humble classic P&J sandwich. While painting this subject, it was fun to explore the details of the dripping jam, creamy nut butter & reflective knife, all which were being influenced by the light. Perhaps my painting of this childhood favourite could stir up fond memories & nostalgic feelings for the viewer, a chance to feel the comfort in simplicity.
