Chocolate Doughnut

4"x6" oil on raymar panel. To illustrate how nasty a spousal unit I am, I forced The Spousal Unit to take the bite out of this doughnut for the painting. Well, actually, the bite turned into several, but it was torture for her nonetheless. I am cruelty personified. Anyway... This may be the only bread or cake-like item I have ever painted. What can I say? It was there. The bites were intentional manipulations to see what the light and shadow would do in and through the irregular shapes. It is always hard to know when a painting is finished, but I knew that this painting was finished, when the doughnut mysteriously disappeared.
