Undone





Undone is this week's theme over at Illustration Friday. Yes, I am a little late...I definitely feel a day late and a dollar short pretty much continually these days as we careen towards Christmas...or as I think of it, Stressmas! ;-) Cake definitely helps if you can get some.

Last Slice, oil on canvas, Nancy Bea Miller

Beautiful painting. I can think of 2 interpretations: Either someone was undone by eating almost the whole cake, or the cake is not yet completely gone.

I love your cakes and donuts! They're something I never eat but find myself craving more of yours.

The brown paper I painted the woman on is a grocery bag with folds, unfortunately. I've done a whole series of them and I refer to them as "bag ladies."

I adore the little girl in the doorway. Are you sure it isn't finished? It's stunning.
