Art: Green Eggs and Spam?! by Artist Amanda Makepeace

After a long day of chasing leads, all P.I. Terry Trout wants is his green ham! Did the Seuss Lounge really think they could disguise Spam with a green sauce and nobody would know any better?

This was my first time participating in the Spam & Trout Show, and I have to admit I had a blast creating this last minute digital painting in Photoshop CS4.

My painting began as a sketch ( you can view here) but ended up stranded on my desk for most of September due to illness. Turns out I needed my gall bladder taken out!! With little time to complete I decided creating a digital painting in Photoshop was my only option.

I ended up piecing together a few more sketches to create the back wall of photographs and the fish plaque. Then got to work painting. Total time was roughly 13 hours.
