What an April Fool’s Day! For those of you who live outside of Scotland, Tunnocks is a Scottish band of confectionary who make very popular treats such as Teacakes, Caramel Wafers and Snowballs. They are quite a national institution. Well, I unveiled my saucy pop art painting and a pair of framed Tunnock’s teacake tassles, at the Glasgow Print Studio’s TUNNOCKED art exhibition last night. I went suitable attired in a red and white striped dress and made a teacake heart fascinator to match. Trevor wore a tassle t-shirt under his jumper and was giving everyone a wee flash.
I was very surprised how well the painting was received as you don’t see much risque art in that gallery. A great time was had by all, and selling the tassles assemblage piece on the opening night was the cherry on the teacake!
