November Art Challenge: Pie

Nov 4, 2016 | Art Challenges | 0 comments

I’m not a real big dessert person, but I do like a treat now and then. When Thanksgiving rolls around, I always look forward to one of my favorite fall treats, pumpkin pie. Grandma used to make the best pumpkin pie too. It had a nut crust and lots of wonderful spices in the pie filling. Delicious!

Anyway, I figured, since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I would dedicate this month’s art challenge to pie. This is a 10x13-inch piece titled “There’s Always Room for Pie”.

I wanted to create a bit of an illusion, so I cut out each piece and painted them separately. After they had dried, I finished adding some accents with markers.

Then I hot glued everything down to a piece of foam core board. I didn’t glue every single edge down either. Just enough to keep things flat, but still leave some dimension. I like how it makes everything stand out just that little bit more.

Anyway, as always ya’ll, even though I’ve created this as a personal challenge, if any of ya’ll are inspired by the challenges too I would love to see your work. Just email me at with a jpeg of your piece along with your name and title of your work. I’ll post a few of the pieces on Thimble Belle’s Facebook page along with next month’s challenge.

Happy creating everyone!
