"Italian Cookies"






Oil on 5"x7" hardboard panel

I just love cookies. I kept having to scrape this painting off, and every time I did, it looked better with the paint scraped away. It left an interesting ghost of the image and a nice texture that I wanted to try and work with somehow. I like how this one came out, finally.

  3. Debbie, I had these same cookies a few weeks ago, when my Dad-in-law brought them from N.Y. on his yearly visit. They were sitting in that neat white box, and I thought 'I should paint these'. But I chickened out; seeing your rendering made me chide myself for not trying harder. Lovely painting!
