Cupcake Illustration

                                                       Acrylic on board 6" x 6"
I just wanted to do something bright and fun from my imagination. I did however paint the fork from life and I also got a few cachous out of the pantry to copy the shine on them.
Now to do some writing!      

Sunset and Nearly Sunset

All has been fairly quiet on the painting front lately but not on the creative front overall. I have been spending a lot of time on my writing. Both on an adult non-fiction manuscript and a children's picture book story that I am re-working.

 I did finally put brush to board today and have been doing a cupcake illustration in acrylics. I'm not sure if it will be respectable enough to post when I finish it off tomorrow, but in the meantime I thought I would post this pretty skyscape and also the seascape.

Back yard sunset

Almost sunset on our beach walk.
Both of these photos were taken in January.

Standard Rose

                                                     Acrylic on board 7" x 5"
I managed to loosen up today but the outcome wasn't much chop. My heart wasn't in it today.

Sunflower with Bud

                                             Acrylic on board  6" x 6"

I painted this sunflower today from a photo I took in January. My lovely neighbours, Gerry and Pat, had a flock of them growing in their garden and kindly let me photograph them for reference material.
I think the bud looks slightly disembodied - or should that be disembudied?
