I imagine this oil painting of a croissant would look great hanging in a dining or kitchen setting. It’s a little celebration of a crafted piece of doughy, buttery goodness!

My motivation for painting this is just that I really, really like croissants and I know lots of other people who do too. Painting my food is worse than just photographing it though, isn’t it?

The bakery downstairs

Once I lived in a flat above a bakery where sometimes the smells were so good but most of the time it smelled like they were burning the croissants – a charred aroma often wafted down the street. They never actually did though, it was just the carbonised crumbs at the bottom of the oven – still, that’s seriously bad marketing!

Small scale art

I need to paint big for my career, to make an impact on a large wall, to create art with a high price in order to earn my living but I also need to paint small for my soul. I value both because I learn so much from every different type of painting I attempt. Painting big shows deliberate commitment to a subject, that the artist is confident and sure about what they want to convey. Painting small makes for achievable goals, it’s less of an investment of time and materials, plus I can unfold my ideas fast.
