Coffee Shack Coffee And..., Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

SOLD

I was in Marshfield, MA yesterday, and couldn't resist the pull from The Coffee Shack - it is a little coffee and donut shop with AMAZING donuts (and yummy coffee, too, as in *iced* that I sipped all the way home!). Here we have a half of a German Chocolate Donut atop an Old Fashioned Glazed. I'm going to ''like" Coffee Shack on Facebook, and you might want to, too! And stop in some morning when you're feeling decadent.. or blue... or cheerful.... or just plain hungry! So! Susan Roden... let's see what you fire back at me NOW!

I was channelling fellow Daily Painter Original painter Gwen Bell while painting this. I bought this napkin this weekend with her in mind, as I love her fabrics that she paints! It was fun, although I felt I was a little 'tight', a bit 'literal'... maybe doing more of them will loosen me up!

  1. Double whammy!
    They look good Kelley and a German Chocolate! (Hadn't ever seen one of those around.)

    I was too busy eating and having a tussle with my Grandson to paint today (pic on my blog).

    But coming for you tomorrow - beware!

  4. I think these colors against the really dark background work well, I'm also impressed w/the slight variation in darks on the inside of the donut vs. the background = I would not find that so easy to do. . . I love the patterned fabric!

  12. This is so great Kelley! Love that bright orange cup next to the dark background and the blue napkin. Of course, the pastries are scrumptious as always. Love the perspective as well. I want that mug!

    Thank you for the link! :)

  13. Kelley, this is just scrumptious! I love your handling of the paint and the choice of colour is unexpected and so right! You better watch out, Gwen...this might turn into a coffee mug and patterned fabric war...(I have a couple of small patterned fabric things up my sleeve too).

  16. Being a late commentor on this piece I am so surprised that no one mentioned the face that is made out of those donuts peeking out from behind that cup, it made me laugh out loud....I really love this piece!

  18. Well, as some one else send this is one of my new favorites. I am quite enjoying the friendly competition between you and Susan. I like the addition of the mug and the fabric it adds a warmth to the piece, really inviting. How will we know who wins?

  19. Whoever can still fit through the door at the end of Sept will be the WINNER!

  20. This is just plain cruel, Kelley!

    A German Chocolate Donut?! Ughh, I want one sooooo bad now!

    No fair!

    You did an excellent job on that peach-toned mug by the way(shadows and highlights)....even if you are a meanie!
