Artist's Description

Where – Coney Island, New York.
Who – Self portrait
Prop – Whirly Sweet from Dylans Candy Bar

I’d spent many a day on the internet looking for a Swirly sweet as big as my face and every time I found one they where extremely expensive, UK prices. So I bought one I could afford. When it was delivered it was so tiny it couldn’t even cover the drinks coaster. I figured I could photograph it and photoshop it in later.
But my daughter found it and ate it.
While on a trip to New York ( Honeymoon) we popped into this wonderful store called Dylans Candy Store, probably the biggest sweet shop I’ve ever been to and the holder of one of the biggest Swirly candy sweets for £3 bargain.
I smiled with a wicked grin as I bought it, thinking “I’d like to see my daughter try and eat this sweet”.
I have another shot in mind for this sweet but I need my daughter to be willing to pose with it without running off and devouring first. Tricky prospect.

I hope you like it.
