Three Cupcakes

"Three Cupcakes"

6"x 9" Oil on stretched canvas.

This latest DSFDF challenge was a blast. I wanted to get started as soon as I saw the photo and it proved to be just as fun to paint as anticipated. Not taking the painting too seriously, I just really wanted to make it whimsical in it's color and handling. Currently on a "cleansing" diet that allows no sugar or wheat, I really enjoyed painting from a photo on this one rather than the real thing!

Wonderfully whimsical. I don't eat sugar or flour, but I feel I've overindulged just looking at this painting.

Claire said...

I love your crop, and the way your sprinkles balance the rest of the painting. Haven't started my painting yet, but all of you have sure set the bar very high!
