"Grimes Wedding Cake Top"
6" x 6" on cradled panel
Well, I've started something new and wanted to share it here first. When my beautiful Michelle married the handsome, hard working, wonderful Damon I painted their cake tops as a gift. Damon's is the chocolate cake with Oreos and STRAWBERRIES...YUMMM. I tasted them both and they were delicious...and they were so pretty that I wanted to paint them...To this day (a mere 3+ years later) they are still hanging in their kitchen and they still love them...
SO, thinking of ways to personalize art for some people who may want something extra special to give or receive for a wedding gift I started my own venture on a blog...WEDDING CAKE TOP PAINTED "PORTRAITS"
I've titled it "Saundra Lane Galloway's Cake Top Paintings" for lack of a better way to phrase it and you can find it at this url: http://weddingcaketopportraits.blogspot.com/
I actually like cake top portraits best...thus the URL...but I didn't want anyone to get confused that they were photos...Hop over to see the beginnings of this venture...It's still in it's infancy...so be patient with me...AND...if anyone knows of a catchy way for me to get the word portrait in there in conjunction with wedding cake top...that would be awesome...HA I will be painting examples in the coming days...I think I'll switch to oil for these...I'll offer both as acrylic has a bit more of a graphic vibe...but oil...ooohhh buttery and easy to blend...more painterly...SO I'M ASKING...
ANYONE WHO HAS A GREAT PHOTO OF A WEDDING CAKE TOP AND WOULDN'T MIND SHARING IT WITH ME I NEED TO PAINT SOME EXAMPLES SO I CAN TAKE THEM TO WEDDING SHOPS AND SUCH TO ADVERTISE! I SURE WOULD APPRECIATE IT! I'VE INCLUDED A PHOTO AT TOP OF THE CAKE TOPS I PAINTED SO YOU GET THE IDEA OF WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR! IF YOU HAVE ONE AND WOULDN'T MIND SHARING...PLEASE SEND THEM TO ME AT : firstname.lastname@example.org
PS...I think these photos aren't the exact ones I used, but you get the idea...:) The main point is I have to be able to see it well...so a cake top from across the room wouldn't do it for my old eyes! :) (wow aren't I picky!)
I have another venture that will be coming that was born from ideas I've had for years...but one thing...or three things...at a time! HA
