Hope You're Enjoying the Leftovers

Pumpkin Pie

We had a glorious Thanksgiving. In the truest sense of the holiday, all 20 'feasters' contributed food or spirits and we ended with a bountiful spread. Lavagirl picked up the torch her Grandmother always carried and continued a well-loved tradition of chocolate cake. Our now-sixteen-year-old Sharkboy has been making the pumpkin pies in our family since he was a kindergartener. He long since stopped needing my help with that project so this year I painted the pie. And doesn't it all -- the stuffing and the cranberries and the mashed potatoes -- taste even better two days later with a paint brush in your hand?

Mitzi, I love this Thanksgiving interpretive piece...it has all the elements as does your story.
I too think the dinner is better left over with paint brush in hand!

Love your creative baking! This composition works wonderfully in that wide horizontal format. Great groupings and brushwork!
