Have you ever had a painting give you a toothache?

This part of the Nutcracker set is for the "Land of Sweets." It was so much fun to paint.  I couldn't wait to get back to it (after hanging work for the artist studio tour--busy me).

My design for part of the Land of Sweets.
I am figuring out how to use glaze coats  on top of base coats, for different effects, especially for translucense.  

The base coat.
I am using the original set design for my inspiration.  You can see that I am "borrowing" some elements of the design.

I can't wait to see it all in action.  Well actually, I can wait since I still have more work to do on it and a looming deadline.  Back to work...
