The Story:

What made me paint "i'm lovin it" ?    The concept for this painting came about when laying in bed with my wife discussing ideas for a submission into an Art Exhibit titled "Uncommon Threads".   The idea was to show something that everybody had in common, but wasn't the first thing, that you thought of.  So my grand idea was The Golden Arches.  I watched a documentary as of late, exposing the fact, that there was a "McDonald's" in almost every country across the world, but I didn't want to just paint a Trademark Logo .... that might get me into some trouble.   So I thought the 2nd best thing was the SUPERSIZE Large Fry from "McDonald's".   So after a couple of weeks of fiddling with the idea, I went out and bought the largest Fry McDonald's had to offer and put it up into a position where I would be looking up at it.  I thought this would add to the effect of a larger than life ICON in the Food Industry.  I wanted to mix the concept of Modern Art with an Old Fashion feel of loose impressionism/expressionism Art, all in Black and White.   This I thought would leave YOU, the viewer, thee freedom to decide on what you were viewing.  So far everybody has recognized the painting as a Large fry from ... McDonald's ......

Gratitude, What’s it mean to you? Top 10 ….


Gratitudethankfulnessgratefulness, or appreciation is a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive. The experience of gratitude has historically been a focus of several worldreligions,[1] and has been considered extensively by moral philosophers such as Adam Smith.[2] The systematic study of gratitude within psychology only began around the year 2000, possibly because psychology has traditionally been focused more on understanding distress rather than understanding positive emotions. However, with the advent of the positive psychology movement,[3] gratitude has become a mainstream focus of psychological research.[4] The study of gratitude within psychology has focused on the understanding of the short term experience of the emotion of gratitude (state gratitude), individual differences in how frequently people feel gratitude (trait gratitude), and the relationship between these two aspects.[5][6]
