My first ad (look for the egg....)! This appears in the March edition of American Art Collector (page 29 to be exact--click on the picture above to view it in a larger format.) It is a privilege to be included with so many wonderful Texas artists. Check them out too, if interested.
I hate to admit this: this plump strawberry was originally covered in decadent dark chocolate. I couldn't get the proper color of brown mixed on my palette, so I peeled off the chocolate and promptly disposed of it (YUM), leaving this poor strawberry naked.
This is a heavily texture piece in that the icing was done with heavy oil paint and a palette knife. Frosting a two-dimensional cupcake was no easy task! (Note: This appears darker than it is in reality--lighting conditions were poor at the time it was photographed. Also, it will require a little extra drying time before shipping due to the thickness of the icing. Please contact me for details....)
This makes me hungry--trying to depict the cream cheese swirls created by the knife was not easy. Now, all this needs is some smoked salmon and fresh dill. Anyone know where I can find some GOOD bagels in Texas?
I'm pleased with this second attempt of glass/spheres/dramatic lighting. As for the blue marble, though, I admit that I cheated by using my finger to create the swirls and softness of color. (However, it looks better than the actual marble model!) I promise that no clothing was ruined by my blue finger--this time.
