Serene Bride, 7x5 Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald


Here it is, the 1st of the month!  And you know what that means!  Girls Just Wanna Paint produces our response to this month's topic:  Bride.  Check them out HERE.
I'm going to a wedding next week for a very lovely couple and my very own daughter is recently engaged and we are looking forward to THAT!  Every bride is beautiful.  City Hall brides (my mom and my friend Susan), Beachfront brides, Cathedral Brides, Flower Power brides and every type of bride in between.  Something about celebrating finding the love of your life, I think, makes you shine from within.

Party Jellies, 6x6 Inch Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald


I posted this painting on Facebook as a WIP (Work In Progress) and someone said it looked like a 'selfie' taken at a party.  OK, it's a donut party and the jellies are really having a wild time!  :D

I saw on the Dunkin Donuts Facebook page that some shops still carry the 'strawberry filled' jelly donuts of old.  So I wrote to the company to find out which stores, since those donuts really give off a jewel-like drip of jelly (yes, I know how crazy that sounds but here I am, saying it!).  My answer was that they DO NOT KNOW which stores carry it.  (simple enough - which ones do you SHIP the donuts to - they used to be made in the shops, but that was years ago.  Now they are all centrally baked and shipped).  I do, I know, know WAY too much about these donuts!

Point being, if any of you stumble across a Dunkin Donuts in NEW ENGLAND that has Strawberry Filled Jelly Donuts - PLEASE let me know.  I will be forever in your debt - and you get a donut painting half off!  :D

Lush And Sweet, 7x5 Inch Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald

I knew you needed some sweetness in your life right now.  Here you go.  ZERO calories!  Tender plump donuts filled with real whipped cream and a splot of jelly injected in the middle just for a touch of perfection.  Dusted with powdered sugar.  In a brown box, with waxed paper wrap to keep it safe.
Yeah.  I'm even making MYSELF hungry!
Now... wipe that drool off your lips......

Boats To Come

This past week I've not had a lot of time to paint, but I wanted to explore a subject.  I have a nice image from the Maine painting trip last year and, as you can see below, I did 3 versions.  The large image, above, was the last.  I started with an extreme light/dark study, below on the right.  Then I did a tonal version, in the middle.  Then I allowed myself to dig into the color a bit.  These are all 6x6's and if you are interested in any of them, just shoot me an email at

More to come on this one.... bigger, different substrates.... just going to delve.
OK?  How are you guys?  Let me know!
