A Baked Alaska, oil on canvas, 7"x9".  Sold.

I've been itching to paint a Baked Alaska ever since I started reading Mary McCarthy's  'The Group'.  I find the old fashioned food references more compelling than the naughty bits in the book.  Not sure what that could mean....

  1. One of my favorite books and the movie isn’t bad either! I recommend it to anyone who wants to get a good read…
    I haven’t made Baked Alaska for at least 2 decades! I think that I’ll surprise my family this weekend if it doesn’t get too hot to turn on the oven to 500 degrees! Nice touch, Janet…
    Your painting looks so yummy and pretty…. love it!

  2. Too hot to turn on the oven. I’m so jealous. We got hit by another snow storm last night and this morning. I’m going to post a picture of Finnegan after his walk around the block- it’s pretty entertaining. For us we would be more concerned if it’s too cold to eat the ice cream part of the Baked Alaska.

  3. Dear Janet,

    Your paintings of delightful desserts never fail to bring a smile to my face! I swear one day when I have my own true studio, I’ll be buying your art to frame them up in my studio.
    Thank you for being such an inspiration. I love your style 🙂
