Cupcake for Wayne

Cupcake for Wayne
(Daily Paintworks beginning bid $65)

     This week we were to paint something in the style of a famous painter. It was known as the Picasso Challenge. I chose Wayne Thiebaud to imitate, one of my all time favorites. He often painted cakes, pies, ice cream cones, all lined up in a case, or singly. He is really a lot of fun, and always bright. When he signed his name he included a little heart, so I did too.
     As much as I admire him and enjoy his work (and what can be simpler than one little cupcake?), I found that I was not really able to paint in his style. It still looks very much like my own painting. I think there is a lesson in that.
