Joie de Vivre: Cupcake
Inspired by simple pleasures and the exuberant enjoyment of life, what the French refer to as “ joie de vivre”.
This painting of the raccoon with a cupcake was among the first six painting in the series, created for a group show in a local gallery. I was once asked if the raccoon was eating or offering the cupcake. While my original intention was for the critters to be indulging in things that gave them (me) pleasure, I love that it can be seen as both giving and receiving.
