"Coconut Donut"

Quick post. "Coconut Donut" might have been a cupcake if today's shopping trip, post Still Life class had procured such a subject. This coconut donut was the prettiest of all my choices.

Actually, this has been my third trip looking for a paintable cupcake. Yesterday's stopover at the Safeway had racks marked for gourmet cupcakes -- but no cakes. The cake maker is on vacation. Today's trip to Harris Teeter offered way over the top cupcakes that just didn't look like ones from my past. 

It's little. Only 6" x 6". See more still lifes on my web site: www.jillbanks.com.
