Dinosaur Painting

I painted this Dinosaur for my wonderful husband who loves dinosaurs. It was a bit challenging for me to do this piece as it is a very different subject for me. I usually paint flowers, still life or just anything more on the softer side, I mean pleasant looking stuff. 

Dinosaur Oil Painting

You must have noticed that although it is a Dinosaur Painting, the setting is pleasing and not like a jungle. It just turned out like that. 

My husband is a dinosaur collector and has tons of dinosaurs. I picked one of those (Apatosaurus) and started drawing on canvas. The complete background I did it from memory as I did not plan out much. I just like to be spontaneous sometimes. 

I would be painting more dinosaurs in future. However, I would paint only herbivorous dinosaurs. :)

Let me know what you think about this painting. I appreciate your feedback.

Cupcake Paintings

Nope, I don't bake. I paint!

Here is a set of 4 cupcake paintings that I painted. They include Cherry Cupcake, Chocolate Cupcake, Strawberry Cupcake and Orange Cupcake.These cupcakes are painted using Acrylics on 6 x 6 inch canvases.

It was so much fun to paint these cupcakes. I worked for 4 days, one day on each cupcake. My husband who was observing all these said to me, "These cupcakes look so mouth - watering. Do you want to have some?" Later, that evening we went to Starbucks and had Chocolate Cupcake. I have to mention they were yummy.

Let me know if you like my Cupcake Paintings. I really appreciate your feedback.
