Rocky Road, 8x8 Inches, Oil

SOLD

This piece is a commission - Rocky Road ice cream!  I had just been thinking I'd like to paint ice cream, and I was contacted to do this - so I was really excited.  I'll tell you the first attempt was excruciating.  The ice cream looked a lot like this - but I put a light green/gray background.  Then I painted a darker green over that - then I put it aside.  I waited a couple of days and started fresh, and it just flowed.  The pale lavender blue was just right.
