So, this is week 2 of Kristin's Summer of Colour and the ice cream inspiration this week is mint choc chip. Funny enough, even before I stopped eating dairy, I was never a huge lover of ice cream. Don't get me wrong, if someone produced a 99 (otherwise known as a whippy vanilla ice cream in a cone with a chocolate flake and strawberry sauce dripping down it) I would certainly have eaten it but, if I was in the mood for junk food, it never would've occurred to me to sit with a tub of ice cream à la Bridget Jones and shovelled my way through it - I'm more of a savoury fan so my downfall would be family size bags of potato crisps!
Anyway, that's all completely irrelevant as this is about art and I can still get inspired by the colours of ice cream so following on from last week's Dog of Zen, I've stayed with the doggy theme (I suspect there will be animals of some description featuring all summer) and so because it's based on ice cream which is cold, this is not a hot dog!
Here he is before the colour:
