Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake 5x7 oil

Today is my brother Phil's birthday, I just got done talking to him and told him I'd send him over a piece of cake.

I enjoy doing these small paintings, even though they are smaller the same amount of decision making has to be done as far as composition, value, color etc.. They can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days to paint, depending on the complexity of the subject. Its a matter of constantly refining things until you get it the way you want it.

Not all paintings make it either, some, no matter how hard I try just dont make it. These are called wipers. I wipe the paint off and now I have a toned panel ready for use again.

I want to thank everyone who takes the time to read this blog and shows interest in my work, I appreciate it.
