Vanilla Glazed Donut

Vanilla Glazed Donut, 2006, oil on canvas, 6 x 8 inches
I came across this beauty of a donut while looking for food after I got out of work. I had been walking around the city for about an hour and a half taking pictures. While walking on Fulton Street I stopped at a deli to see if they had anything good to eat, but all I found was dried up food in their buffet area. As I was walking out this donut caught my eye, it was wrapped in clear plastic, and funny enough it looked like the freshest thing I could get at this place. Not bad for a buck! Walked some more and ended up in Burger King, didn't have much choice since I live in the area of the city where everything closes after 7:00 pm. So much for the city that never sleeps! Oh well, found me a painting subject and dessert. Can't beat that.

For a first cityscape it came out like a pro! Thanks for your comment on my paintings, I have been having doing these this week, working in this style is helping me see things better.

The shadows and reflections give this one a nice three-dimensional quality. I really like the soft light reflection on the right side and the texture of the inner creme. Looks tasty!
