Sweet Celebration is another painting that is a part of The Artist's Muse:  Wisconsin Artists and Poets exhibit showing at the Center for the Visual Arts in Wausau through October 31st, 2015. I love painting cupcakes! When artist and show curator, Christine Alfery, came across Tori Wellhouse's poem, Theory of Cake, Christine thought of my cupcake paintings and asked if I would like to team up with Tori. Well, Yes! Thank you, Christine and Tori! 

Tonight is the opening reception from 5 - 7 pm. Several of the poets featured in the show will be reading, including Tori. 

Did you know that Sweet Celebration pairs up beautifully with Coffee and Donuts, and Almond Joy? And they have zero calories! All three are available for a special purchase price of $500, a savings of $85 and about 2,585 calories or so. ;-)

And here is the delicious poem by Tori Wellhouse...


Theory of cake 
You are an occasion.
Cake, in fact.
All your ingredients –
flour, sugar,
the look in your eyes –
measured parts
of a sucrose destiny.
You have memorized
yourself: finding fate
in the small spaces,
blending eggs, milk,
the air around your edges,
pouring the light-haired
batter: a mix of heat, poise,
s o d i u m   b i c a r b o n a t e.
You froth an alchemy
that swells, gilding
aroma, deep-seated
as hipbones. Your
surface splits joy.
There’s a sheen to you,
made for buttercream;
the knack of hiding crust
with long-leg frosting.
You cube womanhood,
serving yourself up
with a party napkin --
thumbing the crumbs.
