You know the things.. food markers! The cocktail sticks stuck in your food that tell the waiting staff what the dish is, often seen in steaks marking how rare or otherwise they have been cooked. Please do comment below if you know what they are called. This one is from a well known portuguese restaurant chain where I dined this lunchtime with two friends. We all had the same so why they needed these I am not sure. Very glad they did however as its a nice bright, colourful but throwaway subject for a painting. Oil on gesso 16cm x 12cm.
