I've never eaten (or even seen) a doughnut with blue icing on it before. But this was one of the subjects on a challenge and instead of fiddling with a cat study as I have for the last couple of nights, I thought it was time to move on, so here's a little 5 x 7 in oil of one of life's sinful pleasures.
I've been working on water using acrylics and the switchback tends to be a bit frustrating after using oils for the last few months. Each medium has its own quirks and it takes awhile to get back into the swing of it again. But I had to admit that I enjoy oils more than acrylics. Its the paint feel I believe. Yes, it too has challenges, but I am more familiar with how to get around those now and enjoy the process.
The Spurrell Gallery in St. John's will be representing my work and currently have have several of my original works. I'll be bringing in a few more pieces in next week, a couple of them being gyotaku prints to see how they fare in the open market. Today the Gallery have my information and pieces on their website and I look forward to working with them into the future.
