Happy New Year 2010! This is the first of my daily paintings for 2010 and Part 1 of a fun challenge with artist Ruthie V. We've challenged each other to a Local Painting a Day for 2010. Can you believe it? One a day, local content. Totally fun.
Why pie? Our daughter has been visiting us for the holidays and she and her friend Phil had a pie bake-off on Wednesday. This is Phil's delicious Sweet Potato Pie. It was/is delicious and this is the last slice. This also represents the closest thing to a fruit or a vegetable in my post-holiday kitchen right now. Time to get to the store!
And, because I have a lot to say about this little painting, my final note: this was the prize in a contest I held on my weekly email. Stephanie Twiford won this! I'll be doing more of these daily painting contests this year. To participate, just sign up for my email list.
