Illustration Friday: UNDONE

Two years ago, I responded to the Illustration Friday prompt word "juggle" with a picture of a chef juggling the ingredients for strawberry shortcake. Maybe you remember?

Then this fall I had an art show at a local restaurant and sold that illustration. Hurray, right? Yes, but someone else wanted to buy that piece. So I was commissioned to do another drawing like... well, a lot like that one. With a twist, to keep things interesting. This is the result:



A recipe is just a finished meal undone, right? Broken down to its most basic elements.
