It seems that every daily painter has a painting of cookies and milk and I've seen several of Oreos. I didn't expect the Oreos to be the challenge they were. They were just time consuming and my usual effort to paint loosely ( not always successful ) was soon forgotten. Now if you want to see a real Oreo painting check out Neil Hollingsworth's blog.

I recently saw a painting on ebay that was titled "Plastic Lemon". That inspired me to be as honest in naming my painting. It's a good thing because I ate all the Oreos except these last five.
