Cake



Illustration Friday this week, baked us a cake.
I love cake, don't you? What is your favorite?
Mine is Mandrinen Kuchen.
I painted this little 6" by 6" cake in a cloud tonight quickly, then added some digital icing and text.
So there you go. You can have your cake, but you can not eat it.
But if I knew you were coming, I would have baked you a real one!

The word for the day is ... anticipation ... as in waiting patiently or not, that jumpy feeling inside, and excitement for even a small change!

i love the textures in all your pieces, in this one the white outline as finishing touch is fabulous. evocative of lost things..

The background colors are so watery and blurred...they make think that "someone left the cake out in the rain..." I like the combinatgion of bright and muted, blurry and sharp.

Alina Chau said...

Love the style!! Beautiful concept.

Toni said...

Looks delicious Susan and so is the painting.
Like Carla it does remind me of cake left out in the rain.
Dreamy and organic at the same time
Angel Food cake is my favorite
