 :thankyou: Mea, Patricia, Kathy, Cathy, Linley, Terri and Mary Lou! And Linley, my husband has been complaining about the paintings - I've hung them in the kitchen for now and he says they're making him crave pastries!!
Cheers,
Sharon

 :2funny: Sharon. I find the paintings so realistic and I think so too, that a background is not necessary.
Good luck for fund raising.

Thanks Dennis and Teresa! These go on sale at the nonprofit art show on July 12. I'm doing a 50-50 split on any of my art that sells. Dropped off 22 paintings (many older ones) before I left!
Cheers,
Sharon

I'm sure they'll turn a nice contribution for the non profit.  O0

I hope so! This will be my third year doing this show - I've donated $1600 to them over the past 2 years, so it would be nice to do be able to contribute another tidy sum to them this year!
Cheers,
Sharon

Seriously Sharon, I am salivating.  These were my favorite guilty pleasures as a child!

Here's what a hoho looks like, Val! I used to eat the chocolate off the ends first, than around the middle. Next I'd carefully roll out the hoho and would lick off the frosting before eating the cake - I was so methodical even then! I'm sure others had their special way of eating these and ding dongs, too!

Thanks Lisa and Liz! I'm so glad I lost all interest in eating sweets several years ago - otherwise I'd be a chunky monkey after painting my food pictures - I'd want to go out and eat the real ones, too!
Cheers,
Sharon
