In “Labor of Love” Christopher M. combines his ingredients of composition, color, texture and a mastery of realism to inspire us to appreciate the splendour of “cake couture”. Something blue permeates his canvas with monochromatic shades of creamy and shimmering whites.

To the artist life is work and work is life.
