Grisaille painting

Did this painting on 3 lunch hours (back in 2004!) using ivory black and titanium white with water mixable oils. Glazed the color at home when it was done and dry. All are 6 by 4 inches.

This was my attempt at going commercial; creating a series for print. Topic: comfort food. To be sold to coffee shops and restaurants. The subjects and imagery are straight from my imagination, no still life or reference. I just made it up. The Cup N Spoon is the finished grisaille. The other two are not finished.
