What's new, cupcake?

You may remember a similar painting that I submitted to one of Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks challenges. I enjoyed "icing" the cupcake so much that I went back and painted two more. This time, chocolate! Here is the trio of cupcakes as well as Karin's reference photo.

And finally, a chunky delicious close up. 




The effect of the thick paint with your palette knife technique looks just like frosting. Luscious!

I told you that you should start a company that frosts cakes like original paintings. See---you even like frosting the cupcakes! :)

Looking forward to your show. Can you drop off some work on Wed pm?

Talk soon xoxox
