Finally I come to the last of the four paintings I still own. This design idea was derived from the movie comedy, “American Wedding.” I just thought using a pie image was a natural for my dots. There is nothing specific in the imagery from the film or any of the other ones from the group. At the time I tracked down some photos of pies for the accuracy of my colors. I’m not as satisfied with the results for this one, but there you have the story.

  1. Now I'm hungry for apples and cinnamon! :) I enjoyed hearing the story behind this one, Mo.

    I don't think I would have thought about a movie being an inspiration for your work, so that was interesting to learn.

    It really is a good representation of apple pie, even if you aren't satisfied with how it came out.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your week. :)

  2. Daisy:

    The connection to the movie is very limited this time around. The film poster was just a spark for an idea. However, other paintings in this series had stronger ties: colors, shapes, etc.

    Thank you.

    You have a good rest of the week too.

    Mo : )
