The last cinnamon roll

 I saved this last one from Christmas Day because I really wanted to paint a sketch of it. Four days later? Should I have just gone ahead and enjoyed it with my cup of tea?
I am not much of a cook but I go all out on Christmas morning for my family. I made 4 big pans of these and we ate them right after I pulled them out of the oven. I have been in a sentimental painting phase. I  enjoyed some of the days following Christmas by filling the last pages of my little watercolor sketchbook. A cup of tea and a cookie, or clementine, or the last sweet roll seemed to call for a study and a memory.
