Donut War Day! Snowball's Chance... 6x6 Inches, Acrylic


SOLD
It's Monday, and that's the Donut War Day!  Today, in honor of NO SNOW for February, I'm sending off a volley of Snow Balls (Hostess cupcakes) to Susan Roden.  Watch out for that marshmellow frosting, Susan!  And that devil's food cake cream center!  I'm painting a donation for RI Food Bank Auction, and it will be a tic tac toe design.  I'll show you this week.  In the meantime, cross your fingers for NO MORE SNOW! Pin It

  1. Love this painting and your humorous tribute. Come to think of it no snow in RI is probably rare.
    Kell I tried to make it to Sublime Donuts in Atlanta in honor of you last week but didn't make it there....perhaps next trip.
    Happy President's day.

  3. Oh I used to love these so much when I was a kid. Now I find I don't like the consistency of the marshmallow; it is too stiff. Still, a yummy combination!

    1. I paint in acrylics at my house, Jerry - and sometimes on location. I don't like turps or paint drying in an area where I live, and acrylics dry so fast! I am still in love with oils, though, no worries! Thank you dear friend!

    2. I LOVE Snoballs! Great job! :) BTW, what kind of acrylics are you using and how do you like them? I have some of the interactive acrylics that behave like oil but have yet to find a good chunk of time to use them. Cheers!

  8. Hey Kelley,
    You definitely captured the likenesses of these "pink snowballs" in their sectioned views. Way to go, Kelley! You go, girl!
    The "pink snowball" was (still is) one of my faves among "store-bought" sweets. It brings back some "sweet" memories in my childhood when my mother used to by breads and pastries from the bakery thrift stores. These "pink snowballs" and others were included among the variety types of sweets and pastries that my mother bought at least once a period of three months. Yum!

  10. These are a relic of a past less health conscious time. When the 'look' of a food trumped the health of a morsel. And you made these to induce mouth watering syndrome.

    They do look positively healthy, or something like that. With one of those marshmallow guns that the kids have you could shoot one over to Susan.

    Very well done Kelley.
