I have finally completed the painting entitled Ice Cream, from my ongoing series called, You are Always on my Mind.
Why ice cream? It’s no secret that this creamy, refreshing desert is and will always be at the top of my list. Im sure that most of the people who know me have seen me fight through a flock of small children to get to a scoop or two. It has always been my goto treat since I was just a little lad. I would be rushing home from school with my mouth salivating for a bowl of heavenly hash, dolce de leche, pistachio, or the tried and true, vanilla. A liter of ice cream wouldn’t last long in our household. All I needed was a spoon and a session of after school cartoons starring the GI Joes, Transformers and the occasional Darkwing Duck… 2 hours later we’d be off to the grocery store to replenish the freezer with more brain freezing goodness.
My parents were ok with my obsession so long as I balanced it out with exercise and promised to eat all my veggies. A small price to pay if you ask me.
Now an adult, I try to sneak as much as ice cream as I can into my diet. Making a healthy smoothy in the morning? Drop in a scoop of banana ice cream. Need that energy boost for the afternoon rush at work? How about a cone of double mocha with hazzlenuts? And nothing helps you digest your supper better than a bowl of double chocolate fudge.
What’s the point of living if you can’t have ice cream? I will always have ice cream, as it is always on my mind.
