Puttin On Airs, 6x6, Oil


SOLD
So these jellies (from Dunkin Donuts) wanted to hang out in a cut glass dish... who am I to deny them?  That top donut was so full it DRIBBLED down the side of the bottom donut and globbed up at the bottom of the dish!  Unless this gets sold beforehand, it will make it's debut at Oceanside 17 Gallery in Hull on Saturday evening, which is hosting a dinner for the South Shore Art Festival (where I am getting my first REAL 1st place award).  Now I can say that "awards don't mean anything".  Before I got this, they were elusive.  I know plenty of gorgeous paintings get passed up for awards at these shows, but every once in a while, it's so nice to hear that a judge liked what you did!  And that's the last you're going to hear about this from me. :)
