We’re told to “paint what we know” and often, for me, that may be something from my kitchen. This time it’s blueberry pie.

Blueberry Pie, watercolor, 8″ x 10″

Now my husband likes pie, especially apple, peach, or blueberry pie. And he gets dismayed when he sees a pie go from the kitchen into my studio (as a painting subject) instead of onto his plate! This time I managed to finish baking the pie in time to get an initial sketch done before we wanted to eat it, so I got to paint my pie and eat it, too.

What’s your favorite kind of pie?

How would you respond if you saw it being carried away (temporarily) to “pose” for its portrait?
