Take the case
Cake Case at the Millerton Market, acrylic on canvas 8 x 10 x 2 inches
A truly "Sweet Scene" as described by staff reporter Patrick Boisi of this week's Millerton News. This painting was challenging compositionally and as far as editing. I had to leave out so much! Thought I'd go dizzy watching the cakes spin and timing my glances to fall accurately upon the items. There is a vast array of delicasies to focus on...the place is amazing. Kelly put a fresh drizzled chocolate cake in the case and the smell was of heaven. Half the painting is from life, the other half is, because of the constant movement, from memory.
