Oyatsu To Gin - by Jeff

The title of this painting means "Snacks and Silver" in Japanese. I like painting these colorful products from a culture other than my own. They bring context to the composition that would probably feel completely different to someone from Japan.

Oyatsu To Gin - 12" x 12" oil on panel


  1. All your work is so wonderful Jeff but Pocari Sweat brings back so many memories of my life in Japan (I do love a can of sweat ;-).
    I just wish I could get to see your work 'in the flesh' so if I win the lottery you're at the top of the list along with Neil and Karen :-)
    I love the slight variations of each square and it keeps my eyes darting from one to the other.

  2. Thanks Paul! Your comments mean a lot, coming from such a masterful artist. I'd like to visit Japan myself, one day. I love the amazing cultural mish-mash in Japanese pop culture.
