This was a commission for a young lady's 25th birthday (count the cupcakes...there is even one to grow on in the oven!) She is in culinary baking school and loves rabbits. This was a very fun commission to do...can you tell?
My client told me that her favorite color is red, so I became inspired by this 1950s vintage stove...
A few months ago I was commissioned to paint this for a wedding gift to this lovely couple. They got married in Connecticut at the New Haven Lighthouse - romantic, no? You can see how the final painting turned out, the framed piece, and one of the many reference photos I had to work with.
This painting is gouche on cold press. I love doing projects like this - the concept is always fun to dream up with the client! ^_^ I hear the couple loved it, which is always satisfying news for the artist!
