Now, let me first say that it is not always true that bigger is better, especially in desserts....but what the heck, a bigger bonbon is always better! In case you want to tell a special someone just how sweet they are, or perhaps suggest a rendezvous at your neighborhood pastry shop, I've turned this painting into a delicious greeting card. It's available in my Etsy shop here.

At first I wasn't sure I liked the slanted horizon. It was intentional, but then after I painted it, I wondered if it looked odd. I fussed with a copy of the image in Photoshop, just to see what it would look like if I had painted the horizon perfectly straight, and I decided that it was much more interesting with the slight inclination!

I've spent a lot of time working in pen and ink, or on my computer, so I've decided to switch gears for a while and indulge myself in sloppy paint and canvas. I'd really like to indulge in my subject matter, but I'm afraid I won't be able to fit into my clothes if I start consuming my still lives!
Working on a small scale (6" x 8") and working quickly is really fun. I've decided that after one sitting, it is done. No do-overs, no going back. It is what it is, an on to the next one. Very liberating!
