We Want S'Mores! Oil, 6x6 inches

$100 & $10 Shipping and Handling 





This month our Challenge group, Girls Just Wanna Paint chose as it's theme 'Summer Desserts'.  My first thought was "MMMmm Watermelon!", But Page Railsback's gorgeous rendition of watermelon stopped me cold.  Then I thought "Oh!  An ice cream cone!"  And I saw that Nancy Colella did one of those.  So what then?  I was stumped till we had our own cookout and my son wanted s'mores.  So... last day of the month there I am at 5:30 a.m. building a charcoal fire, by 6 a.m. I was roasting a half dozen marshmallow's to the confusion of my neighbors.  The chocolate was ooey and gooey, and the marshmallows were so FLUID, but ultimately paintable.
Happy 4th of July to all of you!

  2. Sneaky, Kelley. Acting like this is a "painting" assignment. Just sorry you thought of it first. Think I'll paint some margarita glasses. Nice painting & Happy Independence Day!

  8. Kelley!

    Normally I dislike it when a background is more intense in color than the main subject but in this case the turquoise blues work so well!
