oil on canvas — 5×7"
This is one from my "No-Cal Pie" series. I baked this pie, as ones from the bakery are not anywhere nearly as good. Last summer I discovered how fun it is to do little paintings of pie when I was participating in a plein-air paintout in Petoskey, Michigan. The Crooked Tree Art Center was having a paint-out — on a RAINY day! Rained cats & dogs. What to do? I bought a slice of cherry pie, raised the liftgate on my Flex, then painted the pie, standing under the liftgate. It was so much fun! Afterwards I sat in the car, eating the pie and enjoying a Starbucks. Waste not, want not.
My neighbors really appreciate my "No-Cal Pie" series. I'm trying to watch the carbs, so after cutting one slice out, I give away the rest of the pie.
For this particular view, I set the pie up higher, to present it at an angle that a child (or hungry dog) might view it. More head-on, lurking & teasing. Or rather like a big shark, about to lunge at you. A huge slice of lucious, lemon pie, tormenting the dieter!
