Glazed donut in the shape of the Easter Bunny, with Jelly Bean eyes.
This is from a place in San Diego called Donut Bar, where you wait in line for an anxious eternity to get what are apparently THE BEST DONUTS IN THE WORLD.
As you can see, I bought a few…
Only painted this one though. The rest are slated for demolition tomorrow.
A gang of pink marshmallow Easter Peeps.
There’s a school of thought that color harmony alone can give you any light effect you need in a painting. The Impressionists and yadda yadda.
I don’t ascribe to that school; instead I bought a special color of paint that I thought would go to the perfect hot pink for these Peeps. Of course I don’t want to drop $15 on the wrong color so I was on pins and needles until I got the tube home.
And I was RIGHT!!
Holbein Geranium Lake, if you feel a need, as I invariably do, to paint some pink peeps of your own.
Another fallen peep.
Everyone’s crazy about Anders Zorn right now and yes, this is the Zorn palette, only I switched in more Cadmiums- which I think he did too. But I’ve read so many contradictory things about his work that I have no way to know for sure.
One blue peep.
Easter peep down for the count.
Cadbury’s mini eggs- probably the best Easter candy ever invented.
Peeps take the stage.
Although my taste buds belong to Cadbury candy eggs, my painting fingers belong to Peeps. I love painting these things.
My favorite Easter candy- Cadbury Mini Eggs. I already have a bag in the candy drawer. Along with multiple boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!
Easter Candy Cadbury Mini Eggs- Oil Painting
I love these things. Cadbury’s Mini Eggs are my favorite Easter basket candy. Best consumed in moderation… but then again you only live once!
Marshmallow Easter Peeps Painting
Last year I painted the classic pink chicken Peeps and this year I went for the bunny rabbit Peeps. Easter season is still young, so maybe I’ll go back for another color.
People love Easter Peeps or they hate them – I love the way they look.
