This commission required some planning. I had more than a pound of these delicious morsals sent to me by a generous patron. Multiples like this can be a challenge as they become more a pattern than shape. Filling a small dish with the Spanish delicacy seemed to offer the order I needed to focus on. It was also a challenge to stop eating them while I painted. I had a 2nd dish filled in my studio and I learned I cannot get tired of eating these!
