Sweet Trio, 6x6 Inch Candy Painting by Kelley MacDonald


MMMmmmMMm! Still doing the 30 Paintings in 30 Days, but on the weekend I have other things besides pugs to paint!  This is a little painting that will be in the James' Library in Norwell MA for their Valentine show.  

I have, all Winter, little hard candies in my pocket.  It seems that the dry air from the heat being on sometimes gives me a little cough.  I like this variety.  Cinnamon, peppermint or butterscotch..  pretty much covers my moods!  I adore the challenge of painting cellophane!.  It's never easy and it's never the same - the light, the background all influence how it looks.

Happy Saturday, all!
