Dulcito Mio - Yum!

I love painting cupcakes!  It's one of the subjects I do a lot, probably because they are so yummy, colorful, and interesting.  There are so many ways to interpret a cupcake and they always work.

Late last year, I was asked to paint a cupcake commission for a beautiful bakery in Venezuela called Dulcito Mio, and needless to say, I jumped at the chance.


In researching this commission I enjoyed exploring the wonderful offerings of this beautiful bakery.  The brief was simple..."sparkly and colorful" with the logo on it.

So here is the result.  It's a 16 x 20 done in Silks Acrylic Glaze on 140lb hot press watercolor paper. I hand painted the lettering, which was by far the biggest challenge.

Randie and Denice, the owners of Dulcito Mio recently came to the US to visit family, and picked up the painting, and I'm very pleased to report that the LOVED IT!!

It's now at home on the walls of this glorious bakery in the heart of Venezuela.  So if you find yourself enjoying the delights of South America anytime soon, may I suggest a detour to Dulcito Mio to say hi to Randie and Denice, indulge in a delicious cupcake, and check out my painting.  The address is: 1204 San Antonio De Los Altos, Miranda, Venezuela

Thanks for checking in.  xx
