Cupcake5 - daily painting,cupcakes,debbie miller

 6x6" oil on canvas -
 Started out planning a full day of painting in the studio
 - so of course its the cupcakes first -
But have to admit, just not feeling it today.

 Is this the most boring painting ever?!!!

  Maybe its the canvas thing.  Or...

    Maybe its my little friend following me around asking for a walk...

 Maybe its thinking about heading to the art store to get some fresh paint and panels....

(Seriously getting low on paint, right?) 

Maybe its time to rethink the day.... putting on THIS and prepping panels

Finally back at the portrait painting.  Makes me happy.  Painting people is so fun.

So where is that 'sweet spot' - that bit of the painting that is just yummy to me? 
 I've got a few on this one, but if forced to pick just would be the negative space around her ponytail hair.

heres a cell phone photo of the model Nadia - super bad photo but the gist of it is there

cupcake 1 -
 Ooodles and oodles of paintings of cupcakes are coming

 So in the interest of not getting a brain cramp trying to come up with titles for them all, they are getting numbers.  

and I'll be experiemnting with different surfaces.  this one is on canvas.  a nice deep edged canvas.

I hate it.   Painting on canvas is such a drag.  BUT I'm going to give it a shot for a few more cupcakes.

Smooth Operator - cupcake painting,debbie miller,red velvet

6x6"  oil on cradled panel.

Hello.  I know what you're thinking - "Where has she been"?  
 - Hiking Machu school in Paris...busy raising a flock of exotic chickens ?

Nah.  Just doing the 'Mom Thing' trying to survive summer vacation. 

So, now that a routine is emerging again -  its back to my favorite go-to prop - the cupcake - to get my painting groove back on.

Believe it or not, I have never actually tasted a red-velvet cupcake - but I imagine them to be the smooth operators of the bakery set.  - especially this one with his red rose and slick frosting....
