    I have said this before, but I love your line. It is a little childlike and at the same time, sophisticated. Glad drawing a pastry shop makes you happy! πŸ™‚

      Hollis that is the best comment! I love baked goods and pastries especially! I appreciate your comments about my work. I appreciate that people detect a whimsical, childlike quality to my work. I do usually tackle enough detail to make it resemble something close to the original, but with the Eli spin! Thanks again.

        Alas… due to a busy schedule in the coming months I doubt that I shall be able to enjoy the real thing before next year.

    Oh my. Now taunting with a fantastic drawing of a pastry shop I’d never be able to leave. This is so great. You are very talented.

        our local supermarket has just opened an on site bakery, with croissants / scones / crusty bread still warm from the ovens – here’s to several more inches on my waistline, sampled all 3 already this morning πŸ™‚
        Love your bakery painting, especially like the cobbled paving. Reminds me of that famous Hopper painting somehow, and that’s a compliment!

        Wow, if I was there I’d have been right with you! Pastry love, it’s a good thing! Thanks also for the very kind comment. Means a lot coming from an artist whose work I appreciate and am challenged by.

        thanks, must get off computer and go and do some more (eating probably, rather than painting – 6 hours in each of the 2 days workshops was quite enough), also have to PACK!! I’m off on Wednesday for 5 WEEKS!!!

        Six hours over two days would require incredible focus. I imagine coming up for air a bit would be quite nice. So are you traveling for work or on holiday? Either way, enjoy!

        more of an adventure really! A bit of a retreat in the middle (10 days silent vipassana, or mindfulness, meditation) with some touristy visiting and some volunteering on an organic hill farm and a few day walks wrapped around it. My daughter, Hannah, went 3 weeks earlier so she could do a big Annapurna trek – she went up to 5500 m! She will meet me in Kathmandu

        Sounds like a wonderful trip. Those times of silence and meditation can be so refreshing and life giving. How great that you’ll be meeting up with your daughter.
