n e x t Window... . " painted C a k e s ~ "
" c a k e s ! "
february is here.
to me, that means something sweet.
. . ... what's really s w e e t in life?
so this installation is all about
' what's on the plate? '
. ...on life's pedestal ?
a vision of that ultimate, fantasy ' c a k e ' !
tall, tall, never-ending t a l l~
smooth and beautiful and etherial~
hand-painted with a sweet wash of edible pastry color~
piled even taller with layers of the darkest chocolate
spread thin like paper~
pale green chopped pistachios & rose petals
as confetti ~
with of course... .
the ' cherry on top ' !
so... . here's the box of goodies...
the magic ~
from this... . .
. . ...to this.
( magic how it all fits in one little box- )
just think if we all
put everything in our lives on a pedestal ~
well, pedestal... in a good way
like- with a chosen "respect" and "attention".
right down to the cherry filling.
with the leaves and stems and pits.
every detail accepted and... .
the little cakes
just starting out... .
to the big cakes
that have been in your life for awhile.
giving our full attention
~ top... . to bottom.
to the layers upon
upon layers of living, of experience.
( those layers seen & those frosted over~ )
in choosing our newest
' sweet bites '... .
what do we bring our forks to?
how do we pick our ' sweet ' life?
what do we want?
. ...(full) filling ? . ...nourishing ?
