Incredible Edible



Yesterday my students brought in amazing stuff to eat and drink for our Holiday celebration class. Crab quiche, cookies galore, exotic cheeses and dips, champagne, wine, etc. While I was shopping for some treats to bring in too, I saw this lone delectable pastry sitting all by itself on a deli shelf. In typical form, my natural inclination is to paint it rather than eat it. I did a demo on paper, having forgotten to bring a better support to work on. Its almost impossible to do a really bad painting when your subject is so spectacular. Hmmm, maybe more pastry paintings are in my near future...

Stunning! And makes me want to grab my paints - or eat some cake... I can't tell which!

Clean, great brushwork. I like the arrangement of the cake in the rectangle. Feels big, but small.

Kelly and Jody, thanks for the comments. I think I am going to do a pastry series. I've been stuck for a few days on what series to paint next...i think sweets are on the menu!
