Oh boy, Spam tonight!

admin-hhdev Blog, Uncategorised 15 Comments

Almost 40 years ago I started to use junk food as subject matter for oil paintings. Even the enlightened in the ‘art community’ raised their eyebrows and generally took a pass.

I was, and still am, amazed at what people will eat: industrial food-like substances that our grandmothers would never recognize, let alone feed to friends. I have noticed that some of this ‘stuff’ has become high-end restaurant fare, and Spam is a star. This puzzles me and is on my list of growing things I do not understand.

I am still painting junk food and am making something for the table that reflects my interests. Amazing.

Enjoy and be well,

Harlan

  1. I expect you’re still raising eyebrows (ours are raised), but for different reasons. Keep waking us up. We’re listening and appreciating, always.

  2. Sugar, salt, nitrites, sodium nitrates, butylated hydroxy anisol (BHA), butylated hydroxyl toluene (BHT), tert-butylhydroquinone (TBHQ), vinegar, citric acid, and calcium propionate.

    Caveat emptor.

    Bless you, Harlan.

  3. You are always bringing fun to our world. I have only tasted Spam once, I think the candle would taste better! Hugs enclosed!

  4. Spam is just poor people’s Pate….poor in taste rather than money…Spam is quite expensive for what it is…
