Today, in the midst of many other things, I worked on this painting of Pennsylvania Butter Flavored Popcorn:
So, fun popcorn facts... I was at a fair doing sketched portraits in Indiana one day and I happened to be placed next to the kettle corn people who were very friendly and told me all about their popcorn. At the time I didn't know much about it at all. They told me that popcorn pops because it has water inside and when you heat up that water it expands to the point where the kernel can't hold it anymore and it pops. Those kernels at the end that don't pop didn't have sufficient water inside to create enough pressure when heated to pop the kernel.
