Wayne Thiebold made a name for himself during the pop art movement by painting cakes and pastries – and I can see why he chose them. They’re so pretty! Like making a painting of a sculpture, it’s art inspired by art.
While the Pop movement was about glorifying objects of mass culture, my inspiration is more of an homage to the work and talent that goes into making a beautiful cake or pastry.
These were way too fun to paint, and I have lots of ideas to continue the series. However, the fall out is a pretty hefty sugar craving. Uh oh!
