A Still Life plus Pics of Lunch with Daughter

  
 
Our youngest daughter and I lunched yesterday at Teacups & Cupcakes in historic downtown Hiram, GA.  This is the walkway in front of a few stores. 
 
 
Daughter checking out the menu, we ordered chicken salad and it was excellent.
 
 
Cupcake display, too cute...
 
 
... but not as cute as this little cupcake!   What is not to love here? 
 

Had to take this pic on the way out, it was quite more festive than my photos let on...
- Hiram Ga is north of I-20 - just west of Atlanta.

Now about the still life painting...

 
It has been literally ten years since I've done a still life painting. For those who enjoy more traditional work this 6"x8" oil painting on canvas board was kept loose in an attempt to keep the salad greens from appearing visually flat. I have some process pics for any artists interested in seeing, drop me an email. I enjoyed this little quick piece.  Now, dont' forget my GIVEAWAY!

I love the still life- I have always wanted to own one of plums in my kitchen, something about the darkness of it appeals to me. Your daughter is beautiful and the blog update is terrific!

Tina, I'm always inspired by your creativity. Love the still-life...had to take a second, then a third, look. And, yes, you do have a beautiful daughter, but if she's anything like you, she has more going on than just physical beauty. Does she have artistic tendencies?

Oh thank you thank you! This blog updating is crazy stuff, I do not have a lot of the current apps and am falling way behind. And, oh yes, you should have a painting of plums, I love the color of plums and eggplants. Thanks for your wonderful comment!

Hi, Candace! Thank you, about daughter and the art; daughter looks like a teenager in the pic but college grad and career mom! Very artistic however too busy right now, perhaps on down the line.
