The Best Defense Is A Good Offense, 8x8 Inches, Oil

SOLD

OK, I need to explain the title:  As of TODAY, the DONUT WAR is officially re-opened.  California artist Susan Roden and I will be flinging frosting, glaze and jelly across this great land of ours once again.  She is a wonderful artist and friend who takes as much delight as I do in painting pastries and confections.  We are both new members of the DailyPainters.com, and we thought we'd celebrate by re-instigating our *war*.  I believe in the saying "The best defense is a good offense!!"  This is a commission for a fellow Dunkie lover, but there are more in my ammo pack, not to worry ;)
Hey, I was lovin' that pink frosting and glaze... so fun to paint!
Jelly
Strawberry Frosted
Glazed (or Honey-Dipped)
Medium Regular Hot Coffee
YUM!  Couldn't wait to bite into that JELLY~

  8. Yummy one, Kelley. Look at all that free advertising they get from you.....you should be able to capitalize on that somehow. Maybe free donuts?????

  9. Big bang with your first salvo, Kelley. I'm in a pickle between you and Susan. Chicken that I am, I'm staying on the sidelines and not jumping into the firing (frosting) line. Good luck!
