The "Worst" Cake Ever - digital
This piece is for a magazine story in which the dad teaches the importance of following instructions and how some rules in life (as well as art making) never become obsolete, such as like look both ways before crossing the street. The object lesson was to make a cake without a recipe. Everything went OK until the dad decides to add Worcestershire sauce at the end. I am sure that additional ingredient would add a layer of flavor nobody would enjoy. Of course all ends well when out came the cake that had been previously baked. This lesson reminds me of how important it is to learn and use the basic rules of good picture making as we create our art. Just like a trained chef, if we know the rules, we can mix and match and come up with art making recipes that are new and tasty. This one continues my explorations into Photoshop as a painting medium.
