I met with friends at Tim Horton's recently and found myself transfixed by the lighted baked goods: muffins, cookies, danishes, but it was the iced donuts that brought me back to a time long ago. My mother had been an exemplary baker, sometimes decorating wedding and birthday cakes for others. She seemed to thrill to the rising of dough, often making puff pastry, donuts, strudels and danish pastry with elaborate weaving, topped by glistening icing. It was rare that I would arrive home and the house would not be filled with those aromas. So I bring you the beginning of my Confections series, much more memory than a part of my life today.
Sweet Pink Icing was very enjoyable to paint. I imagined the texture as I painted it, unable to take a bite until it was done. 9 X 12 acrylic on canvas board. Purchase now and you can choose your frame colour.
When it comes to donuts, you're either a sprinkle person or you're not. Here's a big one for you: 8 X 8 X 1.5" acrylic on canvas with deep cradle, so no need to frame.

Enjoy every moment!
