Its amazing what you can be inspired by and what you can inspired to paint based off of what you see in the world around you. In this case, Food photography and design. After seeing this image online and wanting to recreate it, I cannot help but look at the word in a slightly different way now considering how much artwork, photography and design is out for us to see.
Truly now, pay attention the next time you walk in a restaurant, a cafe or even when you are browsing the bookstore. Take a closer look at the Recipe Book Section, it's a little mind blowing just how much is out there to be inspired by.
More-so I cannot help but to try and put myself in the shoes of a small business owner. The individual who decided to start their own cafe, their own restaurant and devote a career to cooking for others. What kind of artwork would they be looking for? So yes, there might very well be a small collection of paintings inspired off of food that I might very well incorporate and include in the near future.
If you are a small business owner, perhaps this painting is exactly what you need to bring that business to life a little bit more-so. To support a local artist, to bring a little bit more culture into your business. To even draw people in with something eye catching and unique.
But let's see how well this works, how well people like these types of paintings. This particular painting is 36-inches by 30-inches in size and was done on stretched canvas. The Medium primarily used was Acrylic Paint, But I did also incorporate oil paint and a little bit of glitter in the pastry to make it stand out a little bit more.
