Hamburgers and Star Wars

In 1976, while they were shooting Star Wars in Tunisia, I had very little to do at work in California so I set up my easel and painted some wax food  from American Graffiti that was in George Lucas's office.  Thus was born my appreciation of the great American hamburger in art (see oil painting below + postcard from the Tunisia location from George and Marcia).  After Star Wars opened in 1977 work got a lot busier and I stopped painting for many years.   Now that my entertainment industry years are behind me, in 2005 I've repainted the all American hamburger.
