Jelly, Jelly, Jelly, Oil, 6x6


SOLD

I found this place called Supreme Donut ("Our name says it all" it says on the box.) in Seekonk, MA, and although they actually don't have very MANY donuts, their jellies are far superior to Dunkin or anyone else's I've found in terms of pillowy texture and drippy jelly (if you like that kind of stuff, which, ... I do when I'm painting them!). I was going for a 'monumental' feel in this little painting, and also a sort of empathy, which I was trying to achieve with loose brushstrokes. I know, empathy for what???? But that's what I was going for!

  7. The loose brushstrokes are great and really bring out that sense of texture. They immediately reminded me of Eveleth's work with donuts. I hope you do more of these!
