Sticky Situation

When I heard the prompt "Sticky Situation", the typical sticky situations popped into my head, for instance gum and an up-side down ice cream cone.  I can honestly say I do not know how I came up with the city idea with the food, I was just doodling and that came up. I think I succeeded with thinking outside of the box, doing a series of over sized foods in the middle of city buildings.  I also showed repition in my paintings, each one has the same buildings with the same number of windows, and each contains a different type of food-type object.  For my medium, I chose acrylic.  I found it easy to get values and different colors using the acrylic. I found the mini lessons helpful in deciding which medium to use and helped with practicing with that medium.  I found this project really fun and I think it turned out great, especially the ice cream cone one, which is my favorite.
