Not much beats a fresh roll of sushi in my book! I love eating a simple roll of rice and nori, filled with raw fish and covered with masago.
This simple painting was made for a friend, who had the marvelous idea to commission several of his artist friends for a Japanese or city-themed piece for his personal collection. I decided to use both of his Japanese and city themes by making a Philadelphia Roll, stuffed with salmon, cream cheese, avocado, and cucumber. The Philadelphia Roll combines Japanese culture with our hometown, Philly.
Since my friend is a big fan of gummy bears, I added a blue gummy for dessert.
