Butler's Creme's, Oil 6x6
The end (for now) of donuts. I'm thinking of doing larger pieces, but not (NOT) these Cream Donuts from Butler's. #1 reason is that they're very difficult, being sliced almost all the way through like hamburger rolls then filled -I don't like the hard line on the soft pastry, and #2 reason is they are VERY difficult to resist. Fabulous pastries. Real sweetened cream and pastry that is just so fresh. They fill them as you order them on weekdays. The long rectangular one on top, with the jelly, is called a Jolly Roger or something! I think these were the least successful of the donut grouping because of the sculpted cream. Either that or I should do 3 paintings of them - which would be deadly for my cholesterol levels ;). I've posted a couple of new pieces on my studio blog - trying to get ready for the Spring shows.
