Up on Etsy - Powdered Sugar Donut Shrine 2 - Daily Acrylic Painting

"Powdered Sugar Donut Shrine 2," acrylic on panel, 6" x 6"/$109

Available on Etsy.

I bought a bag of those little powdered sugar donuts a couple months ago for a painting subject, Donut Shrine 1, but I enjoyed it so much I thought I'd do another pile with a slightly different composition. They've got so many preservatives in them I could probably use them as subjects for quite a while longer! So while I don't plan to eat them, they are lovely to look at and to paint!

Thanks for looking!

Daily Painting - Chocolate Caramel Peanuts Snickers Candy Bar Pile - Organized Chaos Painting

"Chocolate, Caramel and Peanuts," acrylic on panel, 6" x 6". SOLD

I've realized that I really enjoy painting these "piles" of objects, so this piece was fun to paint. I also took a few steps forward in my work, so this is actually one of the first pieces I've done featuring objects larger than life size, and I replaced the titanium white with zinc white in my color mixes, resulting in brighter, bolder colors.

Thanks for looking!

Up on Etsy - Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Scrabble Spells Smile - Daily Acrylic Painting

"Smile," acrylic on panel, 8" x 8"/$99

Available on Etsy.

This painting was completed in the "Trompe L'Oeil" style, meaning my goal is to fool the eye into believing there is a torn illustration and several Scrabble tiles attached to the board. I wanted to try a few paintings that used stills from some of the lovely old black and white animations I loved as a child, then crinkle them up, like an old photograph. Adding a simple message to this nostalgic imagery, like "smile," helps me remember to view life a little more simply.
