Watercolor Ice Cream - Comfort Food

ROCKY ROAD    8 1/2 x 8 1/2    watercolor 
A "rocky road can be an obstacle or an ice cream...and I'm willing to help you make either disappear".  If a guy says this to a girl on a first date, watch out, this is comfort food!

ITALIAN SPUMONI    8 1/2 x 8 1/2    watercolor
Italian brain freeze!  I tell ya, this is the real reason Italians talk with their hands!  It's so good!  And I say that in the kindest way because I am married to an Italian.

WHITE CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY   8 1/2 x 8 1/2    watercolor
I only had to eat about three cartons of this flavor.  It was so smooth on my throat goin' down. It's really hard to paint ice cream and not think cream. Try not to think about ice cream!

Actually, these paintings look very commercial, like for an ad or something.  Before I hand-lettered the captions they just looked like blobs of...whatever.  My son thought the Rocky Road blob was a scone of some kind.  So, by overwhelming consensus It was decided that descriptive captions were necessary!
