Spearmint Trio, Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald



I've painted these candies before, but I really feel that doing the same subject a few times makes you 'know' it better.  Once agin, my Dad's birthday reminded me of these, as he always had a few tucked in every jacket pocket.  I miss him very much, and hope that somehow he sees and enjoys this painting!

I'm off for a week of painting on the Cape - lucky me - but I'll share what I do, probably by Wednesday I'll have some studies and plein air pieces to share.

  5. I too love this one. You can tell that is was done with your heart. Funny what memories candy can stir up. Good job.
