"Joie de Vivre: Cake and Tea" Limited Edition Print (Unframed)
Inspired by the joy found in all things sweet - friends, confections and tea (I take mine with a pinch of sugar and a dash of milk).
I've painted lots of sweet treats, and while I do have a weakness for baked goods, they carry more meaning than simply indulging. They bring back memories of my childhood. Over the past year baking alongside my daughter has become something I've turned to for comfort. It never ceases to amaze me how the careful combination of a few simple ingredients can result in something so beautiful and delicious. There is also the fantasy element. In my world the fox doesn't eat the squirrel, they share a table, toast to happiness, eat fancy cakes (and never count calories).
