Pie and Ice Cream with Coffee SOLD(Click here to view auction results)

I decided to get back into some sweeter subject matter and after leafing through my old photos, I decided on pie and coffee. I wanted to paint a little larger also so I made this one 12x16. Glad I found something in the archives instead of having to buy it, shoot it, and then eat it. Click on the image for a larger view.

Wonderful! Love the lighting - and I can sympathize with eating your still-life....

Thanks larry and Nicole. I'm pretty happy with it in a couple of areas. I ve been trying to break out of what I call a traditional setup or composition. I wanted to back up and give the elements some breathing room instead of the tighter croppings that I've been doing. The second it a more active and impressionistic brush stroke that I tried to carryout through the whole piece. The paint was laid on thick in a few places which I really liked, but I still think I have a way to go before I can that's thick paint!
