Vanilla Milkshake & Cookies! (triptych series 1/3)

8"x 10" Oil on Panel $275.00

A few years ago, I was commission to paint a triptych inspired by the primary colors (red, yellow and blue). Each painting featured a different dessert that I felt complemented those colors. For blue, I painted a berry tart, seated atop a glass pedestal and crowned with a dollop of whipped cream. For yellow, I painted a mini pineapple upside down cake with a shiny sugar glaze and a ruby red maraschino cherry on top. I took certain liberties when it came to painting the "red" dessert. Instead of a red cupcake and background, I chose a pink color scheme reminiscent of the color the magenta. In the world of color mixing, magenta a light purplish red, is one of the subtractive primary colors used during the four-color printing process (cyan, magenta, yellow and black).

I had so much fun designing the triptych, that I have been waiting for the opportunity to make another. My newest painting "Vanilla Milkshake & Cookies," is the first in a series of 3 paintings featuring milkshakes! The series is inspired by one of my favorite ice cream flavors, Neapolitan. The other paintings, will include strawberry and chocolate flavored milkshakes, positioned in front of a similar background pattern.
