Cream Puff, Cherry Pie, and Chocolate Cake: Alex's Commission Story

Laurel Greenfield

I've been holding onto this commission for a few weeks, waiting to share it and I'm so excited you get to see it now!


It's a wedding gift from one spouse to the other and it captures all of the food-themed nick names they've used for each other over the years!

It was such a special piece for me to get to create and I wish Alex and Dan all the happiness in the world in this new chapter together!

 Next I fill in the color blocks using vibrant saturated colors to help the whole piece to pop and have a warm glow

I love painting commissions because I get to hear about the small ways that a shared love of food can make a relationship and a home a warmer place.

What are the special ways that food brings your family or relationships together?

I am still taking holiday commissions for this season, but I have limited spots available.
