This is a framed donation to the local fundraiser "Treasure Street" benefiting the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Neighbors of ours helped start the event a number of years ago in honor of their granddaughter. October 22 is the night of the event, here's hoping someone likes sailing!

"Le Cupcake"

7 1/2 x 8
oil on masonite

I'm always impressed when other artists photograph their works in progress and explain the various steps until completion. Well, those were my intentions, but only got one photo and before I knew it, I was putting on the finishing touches. So much for "planning ahead"! This at least shows the initial sketch and the start of the beginning shadows in the chef's clothes.

This is a little different "take" for Karin Jurick's current Different Strokes challenge. Be sure and check out the numerous entries of cupcakes. Have been out of town for a couple of weeks, so it felt good to start back painting with something fun and lite!
