Nick's Cupcake Altar Piece (8x6")

Nick R. gave me this cupcake to paint and I immediately wanted to elevate it spiritually and physically. I painted it on top of a stack of stuff and applied gold leaf behind it to give it a sort of 13th century altar piece look, then gave it some greenish wings (if only they would fold in!) and would have painted putti on them if there had been room. Maybe this idea needs a larger format.... Gold leaf is the most fun thing ever!
