We baby boomers have been enjoying what many term the “retro” look of things, and oil paintings are no exception. Here I’ve focused all my attention on studying the details of this childhood favorite. Even after a lifetime of dunking and twisting off the tops of these treats, I never noticed until now, that they are impressed with the OREO logo as well as the words “Double Stuf” so I’ve included all those details, even shadows behind the crumbs, which make realism painting such fun!

Thank you, Madison. Yes, indeed, I did take a bite and everytime I looked at this composition I took a little bit more. Good thing the painting was done before I ate them all!! Jeanne
