Boudin Bakery Reversal

This painting was inspired by a famous bakery I visited on a recent trip to beautiful San Francisco. The Boudin Bakery is famous for their sourdough French bread; which is absolutely delicious btw! If you're in San Francisco, definitely stop by Fisherman's Wharf and check it out. Also grab a bite to eat there, you'll be happy you did.

Other than the food, what is really awesome about this bakery is that you could watch the bakers create beautiful works of art; transforming the dough into shapes of various animals. So while I was there watching this, the idea of reversing the situation to having the animals be the ones to create the bread to look like people came to me.

I can't tell you how much fun I had creating and painting this piece. I hope you all enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by:)
