Last week I bought a half dozen doughnuts to use as models. Because I find painting pristine doughnuts a bit repetitive over time, I often remove a bite and paint it that way with crumbs next to it. Like a wine connoisseur, for years I'd spit - because let's face the truth here - these things are not so good for you.
However, it being winter and my body consequently craving carbs, I did not spit. I ate the equivalent of one doughnut's worth of bites - and after painting this week - ate at least two more of the six. My son, the guy who has been eating them over the years failed me - he only ate three.
So I'm sitting here like Jekyll and Hyde - good angel bad angel. My waist has thickened this year and I'm feeling like I'm at a tipping point. I had a friend who used to say, "There comes a point in every man's life when he has to choose - pants waist above the gut or below". I'm not quite there - but it's fast approaching!
As you can see, I have several paintings done and drying and nearly ready to put up for sale!
About Me . . .
My name is Kevin Russell Hunter. Painting is my passion. I work in oil, watercolour, charcoal and graphite. I love painting doughnuts - check my "About" page for the backstory on that. I've been doing them now for nearly ten years and hundreds of them are in collections all over the United States. I hope you'll consider adding one of my doughnuts to your collection!
