Wow, so I haven’t posted in over a month. Clearly I’m still getting the hang of this blogging thing, but what I lack in speed here, I make up for with a paint brush. At the end of October, Houston Young Professionals posted an open call for artists to attend a free art event at a newly-converted condo building called Promenade Place. Since I only heard about this art show a few days in advance, I challenged myself to brush up on my painting skills by creating three new pieces of artwork in 3 days.

Hey Cupcake!The larger 18" x 24" painting, created as part of my "3 Paintings in 3 Days" challenge is the one that started it all. I have since done a series of four 8" x 10" cupcakes on the same theme, with a slightly softer color palette. I think the slightly lighter color palette is a little bit more appropriate to the subject matter, but more importantly, it also creates more of a contrast in tone between the cute, bright colors of the cupcakes and their (figuratively and literally) darker garnishes. All of these are for sale at my Etsy store (link below). I am currently working on getting better photographs of all of these (these photos were taken on my iPhone) and will also have prints available for purchase in the near future!
