I dragged my husband out in the freezing rain on Saturday to see if we could find Allie's Donuts in North Kingstown, RI. On the Donut box it simply says "Allie's Donuts, Rhode Island", as if once you stumble across the border from MA you will immediately see a little donut shack! Let me tell you, 3 bridges and 45 minutes later (now... the whole state is as big as a minute, but it takes forever to get ANYWHERE here!) we were on this 'road to nowhere' with Allie's Truck Repair (which we pulled into), Allie's Car Something-Else, and Allie's Donuts. Allie is one multi-talented girl!
Anyway this is a type of donut I don't like to eat, so it was easy to paint. I made a Boston Cream Pie a long time ago and it was so divine no other cake or donut could possibly compare, so I don't bother! Anyway, trying to make a donut 'not a donut', in terms of painting. Trying to make it like a landscape, just following all the darks and lights, the rich colors in shadows, the saturated colors as the pastry turns away from the light. VERY fun. Tomorrow a.m. I choose the winner of the giveaway. If you've made a comment and didn't leave an email address - help me out - I need to be able to contact you! I promise I won't keep this contact info for any reason beyond tomorrow, and GOOD LUCK!
