This tantalizingly delicious painting is of a freshly prepared Friendly's Restaurant Reese's Pieces ice cream sundae. It's painted in a classical style in blue, violet, orange, yellow, white, gold, yellow, silver, red, cream, and gray tones. Through the years I've been inspired by painting these desserts and then eating them.
