Cupcake with Rose Still Life

I am continuing my Food Series with another one of my cupcake paintings. This painting along with its companion on eBay are small but fun.

I am preparing for an art exhibition scheduled for sometime next fall. I rarely keep any paintings but now because of this opportunity I need to start. These small paintings of sweets, desserts and various other dishes, are sort of the subjects of my upcoming show. I may continue to keep them small because these paintings, if viewed in person, are like little shiny candies. I varnish these paintings and build up the surface so that they are like glass. The style is realistic but the realism is very simplistic. My intention is that they are playful and entertaining.
