Ice Cream cone


This is a painting I did some time ago, but thought I'd share it again with you.  Perhaps some of you will remember it.  Painted for our daughter's kitchen, she requested something summery... I think this fitted the request




box canvas - acrylic
measures approx. 15" x 8"



I always find it difficult when someone asks for a picture that 1. they haven't any idea what they really want    2. no idea of size for the painting   3. they say, 'you know best, just make something up'!   

Thankfully daughter was delighted with this and it still looks right with her kitchen scheme....phew!

  1. It's not that they don't have any idea. It's trust in your abilities.

  2. An icecream cone is a really nice idea, very cute! Would make me want icecream all the time! I was thinking about painting something relaxing for my own kitchen with steaming tea on it and I think it should have the same effect.
