When I first saw the piece in "Painting" magazine I just had to paint it. I much rather have pie over cake any time so this cherry pie was fun to do. This piece was designed by Lynne Deptula. Her piece in the magazine was painted on a table runner made of canvas. But since I have a round table that didn't appeal to me. So I just cut a piece of wood to paint on and now this can be hung in the kitchen. That's one of the really cool things about painting you can always take a pattern and change the surface to get just the right thing to fit your decor.
Her saying that goes around the border says,,, Take a heaping cup of patience, a heart that's always true... add a dash of laughter, just a drop of tears well do. Sprinkle well with kindness, faith, and joy and serve to those who are dear to you.

Once I finished this one I painted a smaller piece with just a pie and the stack of bowls.
I thought if would look cute with other items as a wall grouping. This piece has inspired me to paint more piece's for the kitchen.

I love seeing how excited you get over each piece you paint!! I remember those days, January came and I couldn't wait to get a brush in my hands again after the holidays. It was also that time of the year when you started getting excited about the upcomming convention in the spring. Deciding what classes you would take and all the new supplies,books,and pattern packets you would buy and start painting as soon as you got home. Have a wonderful New Year and enjoy... PAINT,PAINT,PAINT...

Hey Lynn, Lets just say it doesn't take much to get me . When I find a pattern that appeals to me for one reason or another I just have to get the wood cut and get busy painting. The challenge on this piece was the glass jar with the flour in it. I haven't painted many see through glass pieces and it's kinda cool to work it up and see how it actually starts to look like a glass jar. I've never been to the conventions but sure would love to go to the big one in Ohio some day.
Now don't be fooled there are days I'm not so excited about painting especially if I have to paint something I've done before. Then you have to send me to my room and make me
You've heard of writers block,,, well I get painters block every once in a while.
But for the most part I do love to paint it is my passion.
I'm gonna keep painting and I wish you a Blessed New Year.
