Just finished - Side by Side Trompe L'Oeil Painting - Buckeyes Peanut Butter Balls Recipe Card

"Buckeyes," acrylic on panel, 5" x 7".
Now that I'm back in the swing of Daily Painting, I thought I'd tackle a few short series of works. This is the first in my Well-Loved Recipe Cards series - Buckeyes. I remember making these as a kid - messy, and sugary, but super-tasty! All of the recipe cards I'll be doing were given to me when I got married, so each one's handwriting will be a bit different. This one was given to me by a friend who also wrote out the "Snickerdoodle" recipe card I painted a while back. I guess I really like her printing!

Thanks for looking!

Here's the side-by-side comparison of the original subject (left) and my painting.
