Moses Botkin Challenge 1/2011

I'm managing to blog once a month...hardly up to speed! This month's challenge was to paint whatever we could think of beginning with the letters 'pi'. Thanks Sharman for a good one!

"Apples for Pie"
11x14" pastel on pastelbord

I had just finished writing a new 'Soft Pastel…an exploration' ebook+ for MyArtTutor and had done a demo showing 4 different techniques for the back cover. 'PI' fit right in! Two pigs, a pickup, pineapple, pilsner and pie...Let's see...we robbed the piggy bank, a pickup took us to the farm for pork, it was roasted with pineapple, washed down with pilsner and finished dinner with PIE! Great job guys... :) Vicki

You amaze me, Lady! Writing a book and getting painting done is quite an achievement. I'm looking forward to seeing that eBook!
