Room For Dessert by Mary Beth Brath

Room For Dessert by Mary Beth Brath
5x5" Acrylic on Acrylic Paper
Many changes going on with me lately. I am preparing for a very special show that will open just 3 days before my birthday in July. I have been a dreamer since birth. My elementary report cards prove it in the teacher comments section. A dream without action is nothing. A dream with passion and constant perseverance becomes July.
I completed this painting yesterday in one sitting. is another "bedroom" painting and is a part of my Confections series. I photographed the cheesecake quite a while ago, but pulled up the reference photo in order to add it to the still life yesterday. I have always wanted to paint pictures of my early 1900's Art Pottery. This was so fun. This series has been like self portraits for me.
The story unfolds as July approaches...
Most of my Confections series paintings are currently at the 2nd Floor Gallery in Mechanicsburg.
