The Lineup - daily painting,cupcakes

6x6" oil on panel-


There are a million things to paint but painting cupcakes never disappoints. Swirling the oil paint on is JUST like swirling frosting on a cake. Plus they are so dang cute and perfect for these small format paintings. There is a little lineup of them in my studio ready to go - just right to kick of the sweet month of February.



If youve got a minute watch this video of the master pastry painter Wayne Thiebaud.


His paintings have always been favorites and remind me of the bakeries in the North End of Boston that my parents used to take us to as kids. - like this one


He doesnt always paint pastry - sometimes he paints women at the beach - a man after my own heart.

Hi Debbie.
I saw your blog link in the Sketchbook Challenge blogroll on Flickr.
I'm inspired by your daily paintings! I haven't picked up my oil paints in years, but seeing your work makes me want to dig them out, dust them off, and have a go.
I'm so happy you are participating in the Sketchbook Challenge and look forward to seeing more of your work.
Cheers, Leslie
