One of my daughters and her husband own a small cafe in Kingston and one of her specials are her homemade cupcakes. They are very popular. Several weeks ago one of my students suggested that I do a series of the cupcakes. I thought about that for awhile and then decided to try it. I am starting with their most popular...the coconut one. I haven't decided where I will go with this, but thought it would be fun to try. Here is the beginning of the first one. 16" x 16" oil pastel on gessoed board. The blue is a background test color.
