#51 "The Slice", oil, 12" x 12"
So cherry pie has been on my brain lately. It could be that I have put myself on a weight loss program. More likely it is that some dear friends of mine are on a quest to find the best piece of cherry pie in New Jersey. This is a serious quest, and my friend is a serious writer. She has a blog called Jersey Pie and it is wonderful to read. www.jerseypie.blogspot.com, in case you are interested. My pie quest friend's mother is also a good friend of mine, and at a dinner party recently she read parts of Jersey Pie and then produced, for our enjoyment, a succulent and beautiful cherry pie. The crust was flaky and tender, the cherries plump and plentiful, the tang/sweetness ratio just right. I went off my diet. I also could not resist taking a picture of my slice, and I have been dying to paint it. The Ray for the Day is "The Slice."
