The joy of pink... in flowers vs. paint this time around.

How many of you loved pink as a kid? Any holdovers now?

http://www.beverlyshipko.com/more-joy/

All my talk about the joy of eating a frosted pink Dunkin’ Donut as a kid – when pink was my favorite color – must have had a big effect on me, even more than I thought. A few days later, I went out and bought a bouquet of multicolored pink roses for my weekly ... [Read more...]

The joy of donuts.

http://www.beverlyshipko.com/joy/

Sometimes the simple pleasures in life give you the most joy. Like eating a sprinkle donut on National Donut Day. Or painting a sprinkle donut for Dunkin Donuts to celebrate the day. Or… finding this whimsical donut pillow on a random shelf in Target. Oh, the unbridled joy I felt when I stumbled a...

Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend! There’s no better time to look at boxes of delectably rich chocolates, is there? As I went through the series of three paintings, I was somewhat surprised by what I found. This blog was triggered by this painting that I basically forgot about since I didn’t have ...

What a confort food cheesecake is - to paint and to eat! The little Cranberry Cheesecake panel painting, originally from Magnolia Bakery, now has a new
home in Arkansas. http://www.beverlyshipko.com/the-cheesecake-connection/

Last week I was doing errands when this photo unexpectedly popped up on my cell phone screen. My initial reaction was relief! Relief that Cranberry Cheesecake had arrived safely in Fayettesville, Arkansas. With all the storms and post office delays, I was a bit concerned about shipping it halfway ac...

I saw this parfait as I was walking to check out, and bought it on an impulse. It turned into one of my all time favorite oil paintings (11 x 14 inches). Funny how the best things often happen when you're not looking so hard.

I was looking at your hood ornament painting and saw you paint desserts, hey, the very thing when I am hungry..(awesome art there)
Hi Beverly, Check out my post of March 16. Psycho Donuts at the office meeting in Walnut Creek! When are you coming to Northern California? We have to make a trip to the South Bay and order from the counter help who are dressed as nurses! (Yes, those are pieces of Cap't Crunch on those donuts!)
I never thought I would be having this much fun in the Second Avenue subway! Did you?
It was nice to see so many of you at last weekend's Open Studio! For those of you who couldn't make it, you can take a peek at my website.
