My friend, Louise came over the other night, bearing cake. She left us with a healthy share. Just before dividing the piece for our lunch, I thought ..." hmmm ... this might be fun to paint." and IT WAS! I had fun putting on the frosting.... just as if I were actually frosting it. I loved the painting and the eating of this wonderful cake... now I would love the selling... I will post this on auction on ebay in a couple of minutes. Will start low with no reserve or you can buy it directly from me for $99 if there are no bids. my ebay site is htttp://midwest-fine-art.com or you may purchase here.
Oh, I can include a great frame for an extra $15.

I am very excited to have just written my first book on Painting the Impressionist Still Life in Oil. It will be for sale through my websites and on amazon and createspace next week!

There are tons of color illustrations and photos throughout. The book retails for $23. I will have a clickable link to the book and pay pal by next week.
