The day I painted this was cloudy….the perfect excuse to paint a spot of tea with a slight chance of rain.
I woke up to the sound of a loud chirping bird right outside my window this morning. With spring in full-bloom, I’ve been wanting to paint birds for a while now. These little guys were so much fun to paint.
I’ve been looking at other cupcake paintings and the ones I’m drawn to are more impressionistic and painterly. So for this time around, I decided to loosen up my brushwork a bit.
I saw these adorable mini canvases and easels at the art store and couldn’t resist; they’d look so cute sitting on my kitchen shelf. I was thinking of ideas of what to paint when my eye landed on a cupcake tea towel my friend Carol gave me for my birthday. Eureka! The best part is that I get to enjoy cupcakes…
