About This Painting

I don't know how a pie manages to exist for very long in our house, but I suppose it has something to do with my wife's strength and discipline.

She brought home a whole custard pie, already adorned in its festive hat of whipped cream and roasted almond slivers. She thought we'd enjoy it.

She was right—but there are only two of us here that like custard pie. And she bought a whole pie!

Well eventually, we were down to one piece, and being the gentleman I am, I left it for her—but it just stayed there in the refrigerator (where I hid it behind the condiments and other tall things) and she never got around to eating it and so... well, you can't just let this kind of thing go to waist — I mean waste...

So I made a fresh pot of coffee and sat down to enjoy this custard's last stand.

Hello David, I really love this piece. I think what I like about it most is the way the objects reflect light into their space. Very nice!
