Food is love.
We all know someone who bakes or cooks with such passion and skill that every morsel they make is filled with that energy and love. For one of my best friends, that was her mother. I did this painting for that friend’s birthday recently in dedication to the love her mom shared with her, and all of us (her close friends) on our girls’ weekends when she would bake us a couple of these.
As a sidenote: Painting food is something I hadn’t done before, but it was surprisingly satisfying. As I smeared on the frosting I wanted to make it appear edible. I think I drooled a little (I kept the canvas clean). My younger sister has inspired me to paint food with some of her own work — painting as well as baking. I think we should open a “bakery” gallery as a collaboration… zero guilt!
