Cookie monster

So apparently they make Oreo's with coloured icing in the States. I think maybe I've seen some with green icing in Canada but I know I definitely have not seen orange, pink and yellow. So a man at the car repair shop had one of these on his desk and I commented on it and he brought out three for me! lol I decided to take them back to the studio and paint them. And then I saw my Allsorts and I played around with stacking them and all the sudden bang, they were eyes... : ) I think i"ve got painting candy out of my system for a while.

I just love your Allsorts candy paintings... very creative! And now I can add your paintings of Oreo's with assorted coloured centers to the list too.

Too bad it's out of your system. They were good enough to eat. This made me laugh. Superb.

It IS a cookie monster! Love those eyes! As always, I admire your composition, Kim. The vertical white band and the horizontal gray lift this above just a still life of cookies. Well done!

I love this one Kim!!! My FAVORITE one so far. :))) And I just saw some colored oreos at the store the other day but *restrained* myself from buying them. But just barely. I actually have to go to the store right about now too. . . Mwahahahaha!
