Last Slice of Bread - Daily Painting by Darren Maurer

Here is the last slice of bread. See it sit inside the bread box for days without getting any attention. Does anyone out there ever take the last slice of bread and eat it? I can honestly say in fourty-three years I don't think I have. What good is it with the crust on five sides? The heel? Who wants to eat anything called the heel? It did catch my attention though for a painting. I liked the way it looked through the empty clear plastic bag. The bag was reflecting some light from a window causing some of the highlights to have touches of blue in them. This one of those paintings that when viewed up close has a very abstract quality about it. As you move back away from the painting the abstract qualities transform into an almost photgraphic realistic rendering of a piece of bread inside a plastic bag. This is painting 186 in Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold.

In my house, we call it the butt. And one eats it. Nice challenging painting, though.
