Art in Library Park, Kenosha, WI

This painting, Cake Reflections, was acquired by the Friends of the Kenosha Public Museum for the museum collection. It was purchased during the Friends' Art in Library Park, July 2o, 2008. It features just one impasto pastry -- the front cake. The other cakes are painted "flat" but they have great texture. The moody blues help move the "behind" cakes further back. The muted reds provide the perfect springboard for the brighter front cake. It is 14"x11" and acrylic. framed.

In addition to this honor, I was awarded Best of Show during the event. How cool is that! The judge was Kim Greene of Carthage College.

Here is what the whole display looks like.
