Mom's Best Key Lime Pie
20x20, collage of hand painted papers
This piece was started at the New Smyrna Beach Workshop as a demonstration for my collage technique. I worked several more hours on it at home before I got it to where I wanted it. I enjoyed working some pie recipes into the crimped edge of the crust. The meringue looks like you could just dip your finger into it, but the detail is created from very simplified shapes of directional ripping.
The trim of the apron also has some "I will always love you" text in it, which I thought was an appropriate combination along with Mom and her home made pie. (crust included, no Pillsbury here) For me, love has always been intertwined with family and food!
