Red Velvet Cake Painting

This slice of cake kept wobbling and falling over. So I trimmed the bottom off the cake and ate it, and then it leaned like this.

Easter Peeps

Pink Marshmallow Easter Peeps Painting Pink Peeps - buy now
A gang of pink marshmallow Easter Peeps. There's a school of thought that color harmony alone can give you any light effect you need in a painting. The Impressionists and yadda yadda. I don't ascribe to that school; instead I bought a special color of paint that I thought would go to the perfect hot pink for these Peeps. Of course I don't want to drop $15 on the wrong color so I was on pins and needles until I got the tube home. And I was RIGHT!! Holbein Geranium Lake, if you feel a need, as I invariably do, to paint some pink peeps of your own.

French Macarons Still Life Painting

French Macarons. Raspberry and Black Currant, I believe. It was difficult not to eat these. Whole Foods in Hillcrest just had a major makeover. Now they have a cafe with wine, coffee bar, juice bar... and a giant expanded selection of desserts! Including these macarons.

Easter Peep Painting

Yellow Easter Peep Painting Easter Peep - For Sale
Another fallen peep. Everyone's crazy about Anders Zorn right now and yes, this is the Zorn palette, only I switched in more Cadmiums- which I think he did too. But I've read so many contradictory things about his work that I have no way to know for sure.

Coconut Birthday Cake Painting

Birthday Cake Painting Coconut Cake- for sale
This is another from a brief but obsessive period when I painted baked goods, mostly slices of cake. Half of this slice got eaten, half of this slice got painted.
