Day 14 - "Doughnut, Anyone?" By Eva Marie Tanner Klaas

Day 14 of the 30 Day 30 Paintings Challenge. My dear friend, Audi Stanton, sculpts desserts and sells them. I couldn't resist this doughnut she created.  It never goes bad and doesn't attract ants. Perfect for a still life setup.  I set up this still life in the sun with a Corelle plate. There is light in the shadow that I found intriguing created by the plate's transparency. Lots of greys and similar colors to force me to look before leaping.

I really like your colors in this one with the nice muted grays. So true that they would male a lasting still-lifesubject:). Enjoy the rest of the challenge!

Thank you, Annette. Grays are so important in painting, aren't' they? I am learning this more and more. Enjoy the challenge, too. It is fun.
