The Heart of Greece


For those of you who don't know, this is an olive and leaves sitting in olive oil.
I did this one when I was board, so I started it without much thought, and about halfway through I decided to not finish it. So I dropped it for about a half year to 3/4 of a year. I picked it back up after I was entered into an art show, and finished the picture off.

Citrus Hue


The first painting I did in my citrus collection. This one goes in the hue, yellow, orange, and ending in the grapefruit with the red/pink. I definitely liked painting the grapefruit most, but painting the lemon was also great fun, adding all the highlights over the gorgeous yellow.

Wedge It


One of many citrus pieces that I've done recently. This one, a lime, was the toughest of the bunch. Limes are fun because you can mostly let your mind wander, and not pay tooo much attention to what you're doing, as the basic shapes need to be put in, and then the lines to show where the segments are. However, my green paint wasn't cooperating, so it didn't want to blend with my black.

Dolphin Statue - Fountain with a Porpoise


This picture I actually painted waaay back in 2011, but I didn't think anything of it, and put it away without doing anything with it. I know that I was thinking of doing a partner for it, and I started working on it, but things just didn't end up working, and I put the second painting away too.
Anyhoo, long story short, I finally entered this into an art show and, well... nothing happened. It didn't sell, and no one commented on it. I'm ok with that.

Oh, and for some weird reason, blogger has once again changed how the picture looks, and I can't do anything about that. So go to my Fine Art America page to see what it really looks like.

Please, if you're interested in this painting, you can purchase the original! I would like to get it off my hands (no joke, I'm serious about this). With the large gold frame on it, the price is $200 for this piece, without a frame $140.

A Moment on the Lips

Original photo by glutenfreecanteen.com

Ok, so I know most of you are prety sick of seeing cupcake posts, and I promise this is the last one for at least another 10 posts. After that, I can't promise anything.

This is one of the two partners that go with this cupcake.

Baker's Delight

Original photo by glutenfreecanteen.com

My third blue background cupcake paintings. Not nearly as dark as some of my other paintings, this one has a light touch to it, which contrasts nicely with the dark blue background.
The strawberry on this painting actually inspired another painting that I have come to loooove! (I will be posting that one soon!)

Mocha Cupcake

Original photo by glutenfreecanteen.com

My third chocoalte theamed cupcake series. This one is framed together with Toasted Peak, and Heaven's Endowment to create one cupcake piece.
I think I might still go back and fix the wrapper on this one, as I'm not happy with how it turned out. The frosting, on the other hand, needs no touching up, and is my favorite part of this painting.

White Strawberry Cupcake

Original photo by CookingClassy.com

This is my first cupcake painting that the original photo isn't done by glutenfreecanteen.com. When I realized how much fun I had painting cupcakes, I decided to reach out to a few more cupcake&food photographers/bloggers, and ask for permission to use their wonderful photography. Jaclyn from cookingclassy.com was wonderful enough to let me use her photos for refrence. Go check her out for some amazing recipies.

I also need a name for this delicious cupcake!!

Heaven's Endowment


Original photo by glutenfreecanteen.com

For some weird reason, this picture isn't correct to the one on my computer. The colors are wonky as I uploaded it to Blogger, and it won't allow the original photo through. So if you'd like to see what the real painting looks like (and would like to purchase a print) you can do so here.

Chocolate Cherry Cupcake

Original photo from glutenfreecanteen.com

This is one of the two other paintings that go with Hospitality. I love the purple tones in the painting, how the icing blends in with the highlights of the cupcake-top. The dark cherry on top makes this painting different from Hospitality.

I do need a name for this delicious treat. Got any names?

Raspberry Cupcake

Original photo by glutenfreecanteen.com

One of the more simple, and larger, cupcake paintings I've done. The original wrapper had a black design on it that I really felt didn't go with the rest of my series. I eliminated it, but somehow the cupcake is feeling a little simple now without it.
I do need a name for this piece, so any ideas are welcome.

Sour Harmony


Original photo by Glutenfreecanteen.com

My first, (and so far), only green/yellow cupcake painting. I absoutely love how the baker decided to make the cupcakes in a medium-sized pan, and when completed put them into a large muffin wrapper. I love it!

Toasted Peak

Original photo by glutenfreecanteen.com

A lemon meringue cupcake.
With the meringue on top, this white-peaked cupcake is a slope that needs to be devoured. What looks like cinnamon is actually toasted egg whites. Adding purple as shadows, it adds a different effect to the painting. This is one delicious cupcake I have to try baking!

Raw Caffeine

This painting I did for an art show the summer of 2012. The detail of the coffee beans was what really captured me originally. But as I started painting,
I realized how hard painting so many different pieces was. I think I spent 2 weeks painting, doing one bean here, and another one there...taking my time.

Thirsty?


Definitely my favorite wine glass painting that I've done. Though my red paint usually doesn't like to mix with my black paint, I finally wrestled the two paints together, and got that dark wine look.

Decadence


Original Photo by Glutenfreecanteen.com.

Decadence was my second painting of my series of cupcakes. This one had the challenge of the sprinkles on top of the whipped cream. This painting is definitely quite popular, because of the detail in the muffin.

Tenessee Afternoon

The second in my cupcake paintings series.I love the vibrant orange colors, as well as the candied orange on top. The website, glutenfreecanteen had some fantastic photography, so it makes it easy to produce paintings from them.

Hospitality

Original Photo by Glutenfreecanteen.com. Visit them for awesome photography and gluten free recipes.

This past summer I was in the mood to paint cupcakes, and as I was searching, I came across this website that has some of the best food photography I've seen. I saw the pictures, fell in love with them, and right there and then emailed the users asking if I can use their photos for painting. They graciously said yes, so here I have this cupcake painting. And I love it!

The painting is 5" x 7", so it's a little painting.

Olive in Olive Oil

The same friend who bought the Pouring Olive Oil, bought this one.

As you can see, its an olive in a bowl of olive oil.
This, like the Pouring painting is a 5" x 7" painting, so it's not much bigger than the picture on the screen.

Pouring Olive Oil


If you would like to purchase a print of this painting, you can do so here.

This is one of the smaller paintings that I've ever worked on. the canvas size is 7" x 5".
As I found out, painting something small like this can be a real joy to work on, just because there isn't a whole lot of work involved. It's pretty simple to paint glass, as well. The hardest part is knowing when to blend colors together, and when to leave a hard line between two colors.
