"Coffee and 1/2 of a Cannoli"
Oil on 5"x7" Hardboard Panel
I liked the look of this white on white composition and after I finished painting it, I realized that I could have used the same palette to paint the scene outside. Nothing but snow out there, white ground, white sky, white street, white on white. And a little bit of brown for the trees. It must be in my subconscience.
Oh, by the way, the cannoli did not go to waste, as many of my subjects do as they sit for days and get stale, or over ripe, or whatever the case may be. Just as soon as I was satisfied with how the cannoli looked in my painting, I ate it.
