Lunch Sack - by Darren Maurer

9" x 12"
Something about painting a brown paper bag on a piece of stretched canvas is really fun for me. I have used them before as subjects in paintings and all the different tones of color always amaze me. The sack is made entirely of brown kraft paper but the amount of different colors I see in the bag when a strong light is casting shadows across it is almost endless. There are oranges, dark browns, dark greys, blues, ivory tones, and all kinds of subtle earth tones. Painting the bag is almost like putting a puzzle together. Paint each section of the bag the correct color and a bag emerges at the end.
