Don took the words right out of my mouth! This would be awesome for one of those slightly divey diners that always have the best food in the world! Perfection in this composition and so gorgeously painted! How do you crank these out so beautifully, so seemingly effortlessly day after day, my friend?

I so enjoy all of your paintings and then you throw one like this in. Ketchup, yep, ketchup can be taken to new heights and be artful, too :) This one is all about the lights and darks - a wonderful lesson in composition.

This is a great one! Says it all. Pass the ketchup, please! Perfect for the 4th.

Fabulous - I love that bright touch of red to make the whole piece sizzle!

A vegetable for the Fourth. Great ketchup and salt.

One of my faves!!!! So fresh and juicy....both the painting and the way it makes the ketchup look.

Love this. I feel as though you've stepped into the diner in Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks" and painted what's on the counter.
