I met with friends at Tim Horton's recently and found myself transfixed by the lighted baked goods: muffins, cookies, danishes, but it was the iced donuts that brought me back to a time long ago. My mother had been an exemplary baker, sometimes decorating wedding and birthday cakes for others. She seemed to thrill to the rising of dough, often making puff pastry, strudels and danish pastry with elaborate weaving, topped by shining icing. It was rare that I would arrive home and the house would not be filled with those aromas. So I bring you the beginning of my Sweet Confections series, more memory than a part of my life today.
Sweet Pink Icing was very fun to paint. I imagined the texture as I painted it, unable to take a bite.
9 X 12" acrylic on canvas board, soon to be framed. Shipping will be extra.
