More Candy

"Plain M & M's II, 6"x6", Oil on Board
I finished painting this a couple of hours ago and decided to go ahead and get this posted tonight. I ended up painting this candy piece because I really wanted something colorful after painting the teapot. The biggest challenge painting these pieces are all the lettering on the packages. I might have to reshoot this piece because the yellow M & M looks jagged on the edge. It's not like that on the painting so I'm not sure what's going on. For my artists pick of the week, take a look at Scott Fraser and Linden Frederick's work. I was fortunate to see Linden Frederick's work at the Farnsworth Art Museum back in 2007 and it's impressive.
