When I work on the dessert series, I fear that people will think it's just another indicator of a country's shallow self-indulgence. It is not that; it will have a twist to it when it's completed and mounted in a gallery.
On that note, here is this morning's addition to the series; the chocolate layer cake that my friend ordered to aid my little series, last Friday night after we saw the Emma Thompson movie:
Earlier I had dabbed my palette with reds, white, and black, and set about painting a couple of hundred tiny "berry" dots in the background of the window display. It got very tiring, very quickly, but I kept at it as long as I could. Then I did a bit of work on the woman's coat, then moved to the left putting details on the mannequins' shoes and simultaneously smearing the black paint from the coat onto the building facade. I will never learn. Paint from LEFT to RIGHT.
