Painting: Oil on Wood.
What started out as just a fun little painting turned into a learning experience. I had always thought of the fortune cookie as a purely Chinese culinary invention. However, I learned that although they are often served as dessert in Chinese restaurants in the U.S, they are not a tradition in China. Furthermore, their exact origin is unclear. They most likely originated from cookies made by Japanese immigrants to the United States in the 19th or early 20th century. One additional note, I ate my still life.
