Makin’ Donuts

4 am and I’m painting sprinkles in the moonlight. Thursday I hang a show of new Gouache & Ink resist paintings at Blackbird Bakery.

This technique involves Gouache (“goo-wash”), waterproof ink and the kitchen sink. It was the subject of my workshop a couple weeks ago – which went well, by the way. Thanks for all your cheers and especially The Workshoppers Six!

Here’s a little sneak peek of  “With Sprinkles”, the fourth of what I hoped would be a collection of ten paintings for the month of March. But I’ll be lucky to have five in the show. Like my longings for chocolatey lovelies, my creative vision is often much bigger than my physical capabilities. (Day 56 Sugar-Free)

Have a sweet week! – Pierr

There! ‘That’s it.

    Mouth watering picture. Must be hard to paint things like that and not eat sugar. I gave up sweets for Lent as usual. Wish I could be this good the rest of the year.
