DSFDF: Do Calories Count If You Just Paint Them?

Mindy's Wonders
8x8 oil on panel
SOLD
This is Karin Jurick's latest Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge. Click here for the last one I did and here to see all the remarkable cupcake entries. I know an amazing woman who makes amazing cupcakes. She does chocolate, she does sprinkles - but my favorite is called Wedding Cake. White on white, no bling, they are gossamer clouds of sugary goodness - each bite to be savored. I understand she's left baking behind to follow her next calling. What a pity. It was Mindy's Wonders I dreamed about while I painted yesterday.

Really lovely, Mitzi---the spirals in the icing and the scattering of sprinkles animate the whole painting.

Love your cupcakes! The mix of colors in the background really works well. Beautifully realized shadows, and a wonderful flurry of confetti sprinkles.

Wow, this is lovely. You did a great job with the composition, shadows and the sprinkles in light and shadow are very convincing colors/values.
