WIP, No Longer


Detail, Huge Cupcake Painting, mixed media with acrylic


Detail, Huge Cupcake Painting, mixed media with acrylic

Complete Finished work


I wanted to show the detail photos because now you can see nearly the right color when I zoomed in on the huge cherry. When I step back, I get a light bloom on it. Sigh.

All that's left is to sign it------and give it a better title--any ideas?

I've been working on getting holiday items planned out and assembled in my little workshop in anticipation of the hordes (it is to be hoped) of holiday shoppers out looking for that special hand crafted item. I'll be doing most of my shopping right out the front door of my studio at LibertyTown in the gift emporium--so convenient. And, I'll be giving things that are like no other items my friends and family will receive made by people I also consider to be my friends and family. Can't get better than that!

Speaking of good things....the anniversary of my first blog post just passed on November 4. What a cool adventure this has been, and what interesting, creative, inspirational folks I have met through this medium. Thanks so much to all of you who post and comment through blogging. You have enriched my life immeasurably.

How about "irresitable" for a title suggestion? who can resist a cupcake- especailly this one!!!! I bet that this will sell very quickly!! Do I see a series coming????

Thanks, E. I think you encouraged me to get started, and I so appreciate that, plus tips and "you go girls." You continue to encourage and cheer me on.

What about "Baker's Dozen?"

Elizabeth, I just absolutely love your work! This is such an inspiring piece. I am wishing you would teach a workshop and I could go. It would so enhance my way of thinking! You are certainly one of the most inspiring artists I follow! Is this a straight painting or collage?? Love it!!

This is such a delicious piece; how about "Garden of Eatin'"? Just kidding, really, but I really want to take a bite out of it.

How luscious! I admire your skill at unifying such a complex piece.

I must say that your holiday comments have given a kickstart to considering gifts for the special people in my life.
