|Serving up Coconut Creme Pie, Strawberry Strudel and Chocolate Mousse Cake on the easel|
A carefree day at last. I got off to a good start for the weekend. I started panel two of the trip-tyke I had started last year. These are such fun. No heavy thinking, no serious measuring of points, just color and and imagining the texture of chocolate and whipped cream and toasted coconut and wondering how am I going to pull this off? The answer was "It's Pie. Enjoy"
This is the panel that I finished first. I call it Chocolate Mice. Ellis hates it. "They're disgusting he said."
I adore it, because the idea is disgusting and that's why I took the photograph and what makes the painting fun. --And the mice themselves were delicious. They're filled with chocolate creme. There's nothing disgusting about chocolate creme. He's so straight.
The trip-tyke is going to be great. Here's my reference photograph:
