Mini Paintings - Inspired by some of my favorite famous paintings....



Hi Everyone...

On our vacation I had thought about messing around with some mini-paintings....

and you know I had to incorporate cupcakes in them some how...lol

So here are the ink sketches...I will be painting these and posting them in colour....






These are a tribute to some of my all time favorites.....
  • Picasso - "Woman with Book" in my case it is "Woman with cupcake"
  • Grant Wood - "American Gothic" in my case they pierced a cupcake with the fork
  • Leonardo Da Vinci - "Mona Lisa" in my case I created 2....she is one of my favorites....she is waiting to eat her cupcake...
  • Rene Magritte - "Son of Man" I always picture a cupcake instead of the green apple on this one...
  • Edward Munch - "The Scream" ...something I always do when I see a great cupcake...

Well I hope these brought a smile to your day....

Who are some of your favorite painters and pieces...I would love to know...

Thanks for popping in and saying hello!

Hugs

Diana

Lovely interpretations!
Love the Magritte and the scream I like better than the original.
One of my favorite painters is definitely Frida Kahlo and I also love Gauguin.
The pictures of your vacation are wonderful as well!
Glad you are back and that you had such a good time
