Fast Food

This acrylic painting was done from a photo of a painting of a half eaten hamburger.  My attempt to paint an abstract left me wondering what would work.  My approach to painting is to sketch a scene and play with modifications of the sketch before painting it.  While looking at my recently completed painting of a hamburger and coke, I took a picture with my cell phone but while snapping the shutter, I moved the camera quickly across the subject.  The hamburger had onion, lettuce and tomato and was on a white napkin.  The photo came out as a long blur of color, just what I wanted.  The drops showed the effect of gravity.  Pretty slick, huh?
