One of my interests is in Realism. This is the diner series. One Thanksgiving my sister-in-law brought an apple pie that I thought should be immortalized. It was such fun to do, I just kept trying items off a diner’s menu. You know, comfort food.

Artists have been painting still lifes for hundreds of years. They painted food that was around them; wine, cheese, bread. I thought I’d give it a try with the food that is around us.
