Some of my favorite painting recommendations come from friends and family. For instance, my husband's red peppers, the pies my daughter and her friends made, or when my friend Tim asked, after a string of single type pear paintings, if I supported pear integration.
Yesterday my friend Anne-Marie, the Soap Queen, texted me to say she had cupcakes left over from filming her latest episode of Soap Queen TV. She dropped them off and I painted them.
I've never looked so closely at cupcakes before. Is there a more charming pastry?
