Here is a detail from a new painting.  I'll post the whole picture once it's been photographed.

Here's the recipe for the lovely ladies from my life drawing class
(everyone knows you go to life drawing for the cake, right?)

Mini Marmalade Muffins
(makes 12 mini muffins)

110g plain flour
45g castor sugar
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
30g butter
¼ cup marmalade
1 egg
100ml of milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

lemon juice
icing sugar

Melt butter and marmalade and set aside to cool.
Grease a mini muffin tin and preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Sift flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and lightly stir in sugar and salt.
In a separate bowl whisk egg, milk and vanilla essence then add butter and marmalade mixture.
Add to dry ingredients and stir carefully to combine.
Don't over mix as muffins will be tough.
Pour in to prepared muffin tin and cook for around 15 minutes, depending on your oven.
The tops of the muffins will still look quite pale when cooked so use a cake tester.

Ice when cool (not sure on the exact amounts so maybe start with juice of half a lemon and a tsp of marmalade, then stir in sufficient icing sugar with a fork to form a stiff icing).

Another one

I had a spare piece of wood so I painted a companion piece.
