Cookies and Milk

Well, one advantage of painting food is that you can eat it when you are done. Several of my "models" disappeared during the execution of this painting. Are Oreos really black or just very dark brown? With the light on them, the brown in the cookies stood out so I painting them with multiple layers of brown with black shadows. I wasn't very happy with how the glass of milk reads as a painting, but white highlights on white milk in glass provides a lot of light colors. I tried to darken some shadows on the far left of the glass to give it depth.
