"Renee's Cakes" (Original Painting)

This painting is from a photograph that I took at our friends' wedding a few years ago. Renee (the bride) is a WONDERFUL cook and an even better "baker" ... which is a good thing since her husband loves to eat :)


Aside from the appetizing nature of the subject matter, I was drawn to photograph this still life because of 2 main reasons. 

1. I love painting reflections. The glass cake stands and the coffee mugs sucked me in. 

2. The repetition in the objects on the table was so apparent that it seemed difficult NOT to come up with a good composition. There's repetition in the coffee mug, the icing drips, the texture on the cake stand and the baby's breath surrounding the roses.

I love the unusual composition. The cake is the main attraction, but I also like the way the cups are lined up. An intriguing piece.

I like your artwork angel because its so pretty and the way you colored your dog its looks smooth. I see how you think you messed up your background. Next time try not to use multiple colors of brown/orange.
