CUPCAKE DRAMA, 5X7, OIL, CAROL SCHIFF STUDIO, SOLD


Why the drama, you ask?  Well, my paint group, Pieces of Eight, is planning an exhibition later this year featuring baked goods.   I have a very bad track record painting cupcakes, so far none of my tries have survived the dreaded wipe-off.  So I decided to practice a little.  I decided to pump the colors up as much as I could (more drama) and miracle of all miracles, I liked it!  So this may be my only cupcake painting on record.  I may not push my luck and try for another.

Fluffy yummy pastel frosting. You know you have succeeded when one's mouth waters while looking at the painting! Love the melange of colors, especially that touch of orange. Somehow I don't see you sticking to just one painting of this subject :)

I wish I'd painted this! I love it right down to the paper crimp :)

Just add a crown on this one. Looks yummy.

Opened to the large version and it really does look good enough to eat. I really like the way you used purples for the shadows and that great spot of bright orange in the icing. And the plate! It simply shimmers with translucency. Genius idea to put the entire thing on red!

Be still my heart!! Carol this is amazing!! You really did work those colors to the max, but you maintained wonderful values and all is in perfect harmony. I hate to commit like this: but I think this is my favorite of your's so far. MORE, please!!!! (:
