Pink Flamingo Cupcake

8" x 8" oil on panel

My best friend recently told me that an ex coworker once assigned her the spirit animal of a pink flamingo. I found this assignment amusing and was inspired to make a Signature Pink Cupcake painting in honor of my friend's spirit animal.

Right away I wanted to base the painting on a cupcake I had seen in a local bakery last summer.  The head had been sculpted out of, most likely, fondant or marzipan (a confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal) and the wings were colored white chocolate.

Surprisingly, I already had three flamingo themed paper/fabric patterns to choose from. I finally settled on the fabric with the off white background with the pink flamingo silhouettes. I was so happy with the way this turned out, that I already have ideas for another flamingo themed painting in the future.
