I'm thinking chocolate, caramel and blueberry as I look at this. Very tasty!

Still love that blue :). I have issues with taking photos of art as well, especially large pieces such as this. Outside would be best.

After a lot of trial and error in photographing my paintings, I find it is best to do it outside in the shade, or (even better) a heavily overcast day. Use a tripod, and don't zoom in, get as close as you can to fill as much of the frame as you can and make sure the camera is parallel to the painting, not tilted.
You may already know this stuff, just thought I'd share what I have learned. Good luck!

Very nicely done!

Did you use a knife for this?

Amazing that a piece that seems to have so much internal "action" in it still conveys a feeling of fitting the title.

Truly beautiful. I love the tension between the ice blue and warm ochre tones.
