Sweet Treat

Sweet Treat                           oil                         7" x 7" 
So, we're all seeing those flowers and chocolates out there for Valentine's Day and I certainly felt I had an obligation to do a bit of research for this painting. After all, it was really about time I worked directly from the subject right?? So, I won't go on about the fragrance of chocolate wafting through my studio today but, I'd like to point out that this painting has a lot fewer calories in it than the real thing!

One of my favorite things - sweets! But the best is a donut Mary - got frosting for the holiday?

Kidding aside, I love your art and a beautiful job.
