Ginger Snaps
Egg Tempera

The artist's father-in-law grew up on Staten Island. As early as the age of ten he would take the ferry over to Manhattan and team up with his nephew Teddy by going to the Stadium Theater or the theater on 116th Street to watch "The Phantom of the Opera". Teddy's mother worked in a bakery. Perhaps during one of these adventures they walked past the bakery window and were tempted by this decorative box which held what remained his lifelong favorite treat, "Ginger Snaps".
