"Two Cruellers, A Filled & A Long John, Please"

8"H x 8"W Original Oil on Raymar Canvas Panel

The Daily Paintworks assignment this week is to "Paint Your Donut".  So, of course, one was not enough since I would be painting at the Mainstreet Studio with my friends.  I ran(not literally!) to Jewel and picked some donuts from the bakery department thinking I would maybe just paint the green decorated Long John in honor of Saint Patrick's Day.  I had brought a red plate and a green plate with me, figuring that most donuts have a reddish tone to them.  When I started my set-up I thought I liked it better with a variety instead of just one donut.  I finished the painting by lunchtime, so these were our dessert.  Yum!

Gloria J Zucaro's "Out To Pasture"

6"H x 6"W original Oil on Raymar Panel    SOLD

This is the challenge from Carol Marine at the Daily Paintworks for the week.  I brought the horizon closer to the horse and tried to keep the shapes in mind..  I had toned the canvas with cad red before beginning and let it show through around the silhouette of the horse.

Gloria J Zucaro's "Just Call Me Rosie the Riveter"

8"H x 8"W Original Oil on Raymar Panel

This is my entry for the "You Know the Drill" challenge offered by Eileen McCoy on the DailyPaintworks.  I am also using this as my Paint Party Friday post this week.  Happy PPF!
I love my electric drill, which for me is really my electric screwdriver.  I mainly use it when framing my paintings or taking down curtain rods, etc.  I wasn't liking my drill all alone, but once I added the flower, I felt good about it.
