Afterwards, Red Velvet



Winged Cupcake
A friend took me out for lunch last week. This is a rare event because I don't actually like to go out to lunch...it disrupts my working day and I have little enough time as it is. I'll go out for breakfast or dinner, but lunch, almost never. Still, a number of factors lined themselves up and off we went to lunch. Great place, the food was absolutely delicious and Roz suggested we have dessert too. I looked at all the gorgeous baked goods lined up like sugary little soldiers in the lighted case and knew a fierce hunger...to paint, not eat. So I had a cup of tea while Roz ate a sweet, and afterwards I carried my dessert home in a little box to paint. Which I did. Yum.

Hi, Nancy. Thanks for your comment.
I love your work of art in small format.
Very well done, simple but effective!

What a wonderful painting, it really does have wings! And nice use of the cupcake - better for the eyes than for the thighs, eh?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment.

Thanks for all the nice comments! And no, I never did eat the cupcake! I painted it over the course of two or three short sessions (I work in layers.) It still looks good (although not as glossy) but I sure wouldn't want to eat it now! ;-)

Thank you for the lovely things you said about my Sketchbook Project. I'm not familiar with the publishing options you mentioned, but was wondering if you suggested them out of your own experience. It does give me something to think about...

I noticed your cupcake when you first posted it. I remember thinking I wish I could just scoop off the frosting with my finger and lick it up. It looks so yummy.

I like your story and I can totally relate. I need to be reminded to eat sometimes. A great painting as well. Gorgeous.
