Obama With Hostess Twinkies Paintings, Ebay Art Auction

Two recent paintings of President Barack Obama with Hostess Twinkies.  Both of these paintings can be found on art auction on Ebay-

This first painting is of the President with a Twinkie near his mouth. Obama has a very Jason Robardish expression.  On first glance, the Twinkie might be mistaken for a cigar. But it isn't. You are lead to believe that Obama is celebrating the death of Hostess. He isn't.

The actual allusion is to the floating head ship in the movie Zardoz.  The Twinkie is the tribute, but it isn't entering.  It is a craft of its own.

The second painting is of President Obama crying while holding a large, dead Twinkie.

I painted this painting yesterday evening shortly after my wife and I realized that our cat Marco might be dying. He's a little better now, but he sure did appear to be losing it.  He may just be sick-cats can get sick.. or he might have heart failure. He's freaking fat.
