Ready to Deliver

21 Cupcake Salute, hand colored relief, 8.5 x 4

It's done. I have really had fun with this. I am already at work on a large painting using this format. My only problem is-- will it be cupcakes or birds....both?? Stay tuned.

How about Birds pecking away at cupcakes...Party birds? Lots of great ideas, you will have I am sure!

Gorgeous! Now I know for certain that I'll be hand coloring my next intaglio! You've certainly inspired me to play with boxes again, too. Thanks!

I've started doing some birdie sketches and I think they look more like individual paintings, not one big one. Hmmm. Early days yet.

Thanks for the positive feedback, Cathyann and MME. I really appreciate it!

Hi Elizabeth, I love this print and the color you added to it!

Hi, Saundra. Yeah, I tried to make it "do" birds, but it didn't feel quite right. I decided on cupcakes after all. I'll post the beginnings tomorrow. It's so fun to be painting again!

Hi, Liz. Thanks for joining my blog and for making a comment. I have enjoyed reading yours.
