"Strawberry Rhubarb Pie"
One day I went to the grocery store with the sole purpose of finding something fun to paint. I thought I'd find some luscious cake or colorful donuts, but I came home with this bright red pie...one of my favorites. It was fun to try and capture the reflective look of the filling and the crumbliness of the crust. Just for some contrast, I painted a fork ready to take a big bite. It took longer than usual to paint this slice because I had to stop every few minutes to walk over and take another bite of the remaining pie. It's pretty hard to stare at something this edible and not feel the urge to eat the very subject of the painting.
