Ooeey Gooey Stack of Jelly Donuts, 6x6 inch Oil Painting by Kelley Macdonald

SOLD

Today was Donut Day in my studio.  While yesterday I labored over 4 large sky paintings, today I bought a box of donuts and set about to getting some inventory for my Open Studio.  While the Donut War has wrapped up (both sides winners), I found myself diving into this painting and just having a ball withe the drippy jelly and the powdered sugar.  And, no, I don't paint the 'dots' of sugar one by one! :)

My second donut painting needs more work before I show it to you.  It was a victim of ungodly humidity in the studio.  While the overall temp was mid-high 80's, the humidity was raging.  My hands were sopping in my gloves, and I was getting cranky, I tell you!

But for fun, here's a slew of works-in-progress, where I am inspired by the foam at the tips of the small laps of water here on the river.  I have decided I am just going to play with colors, matching them up as I like, just favorites of colors.  I still have some to do on each, but this is the general gist.  And THEN I'm planning on trying to cover them with resin for a glass-like finish.  I am so excited about these.  They'll be on a table of their own at my Open Studios on the 18th and 19 of this month.  Enjoy the colors...



  
  They are all 6x6 or smaller.

  2. Oh boy! I don't even like jelly donuts but you've made me crave one with my coffee (and not for the first time, either).

    I really love those little bubble panels and your selections of colors echo some of my own favorite palette matchings.

    The foam tips look like fun little roller coasters of bubbles that mesmerize! Love the fun of them.

  4. Such diligence and in the MOST unpleasant conditions. We both know how we HATE TO SWEAT!
    But....such beautiful work. Donuts, always great but these bubbles are fabulous for their slammin' color harmonies.
    WOW!

  5. Always love your donut paintings!!! I'd be cranky too in those temps and humidity, and the thought of wearing gloves while I paint is not appealing at all--reminds me of that scene in Out of Africa:) I love, love, love your foam series!!! What a great graphic punch. They are awesome!!
