Sweet Stuff


Did you know Dec. 15 is National Cupcake Day?

I've been so busy getting commisssions done for that other holiday I almost missed it!

Its been a cupcake week of sorts around here - on Tuesday I got a visit from a young man who works at the most delicious cupcake shop in RI - Sweet Indulgence. 
 Last month when I went on my 'marathon/keep calm and paint a cupcake' painting spree and just couldn't paint another grocery store cupcake, I found this shop.  This sweet, pink, dripping in confections shop.
 I got there just before they closed and bought a few to paint.  So happy about my find I almost blogged about the shop that very night - and made a note to do so in the future.  (side note: I searched the state for good cupcakes that day and was so dissapointed with everything until Sweet Indulgence.)

So this young man Joshua - whose mom I met at the RISD sale -came to buy one of my cupcake paintings to give to Kerri Cupcake - his boss at the shop.
 - Sweet right?  It gets better.

He brought me a box of cupcakes.  SO sweet. ( Mom, you did well) - and he is talented too,baking some of his own  - check out some of his own creations on his facebook page HERE

And don't miss the Sweet Indulgence blog - gorgeous photos and they are in the midst of a 12 days of giveaways. 
And stop by the shop too, I'm planning on picking up some treats this week. 
Happy Cupcake Day!

by Rick Shiers

New to the blogging scene but by No means a newbie painter!
Check out the work of a friend of mine from my RISD days: Rick Shiers.

A talented illustrator by trade he paints on the side and has posted them HERE

I especially love this still life - the monocromatic palette and the shiny objects  - just beautiful.
 It would look great in either a traditional or modern home.
