Happy Easter ("Odd Man Out")

Happy Easter to all! (or Happy Passover or just Happy Day if you're not celebrating.) This was the painting I used for my Easter cards this year. I had seen someone do a painting of Peeps once, and that thought just stuck in my head. This is about 6 x 8 and was done from my own setup. As soon as I finished the painting I gave all the Peeps away so I wouldn't eat them.

Lin - Thanks!! I saw someone do a painting of them once and I knew I had to do one. Luckily I don't really like them...chocolate yes...so it was safe having them around.

Mickey - I thought it would be different. Thanks.

Michelle - Thank you. And you can't just buy one little box. The sell them in packages of two boxes each and I wanted two colors. Now what do you do with 4 boxes of peeps? Luckily I was seeing my niece and she loves them.
