The Cupcake in Sepia by © Janis Zroback

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Walk with caution, move with care;
Camouflage is everywhere
Acrylic on Canvas..

A little subset of the Delicious and Still Life collections, these delectable cupcakes are from the Cupcake Shoppe in my neighbourhood…they are delicious….
I have painted them on various patterned backgrounds where they become hidden treats…
It’s hard to paint them without eating them first, so I reward myself by eating them last

Pattern inspired by a Victorian floral design….
I wanted this painting to echo the delicious chocolate of the cake so I used mainly acrylic inks in sepia and scrubbed them off to leave a thin veil of colour…the red gummi bear provides a nice contrast….

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    May this series never end!!! Loove it. Particularly like the monochromatic palette with the red!

  • I went scouting for pastries yesterday…it’s too much work to make a batch of something to paint only one…there are only three of us to eat all those sweets which is not part of our regular diet, so I am searching for paintable food….painting more would depend on what’s available..thanks so much Leslie…glad you like them…

    They say never start a comment with an apology, but I’m going to anyway. I sorry that I’m so far behind on commenting. I know you understand why, but I still hate the idea that I’m playing catch up with this wonderfully delicious series Janis. Your colours are all right on the mark with those unique backgrounds. Just a great series.

  • Thanks so much Jim…so far I’ve done only four of this min series of cupcakes, but the realistic collection now has over 20…I’m sure you have not missed much….glad you like it…

    Wow! I am so TAKEN by these backgrounds as they move back into soft focus and really set up the plane of the table top for your scrumptious confections. Your play of dimensions between this 2D and 3D world is just fantastic!

  • Thanks so much for the lovely compliment Randy….I am really enjoying this series and hope to do lots more…
