This Valentine's Day, the artwork I did for Bleeding Heart bakery wasn't my only delicious commission!
I also created a very sweet piece for a celebrity piemaker named Kate Lebo in Seattle. This one did present a challenge--said piemaker presented the situation to me as such: "I am a pie maker. My boyfriend has to avoid gluten. Is there any way you can portray this with star-crossed lover slices of pie?".
The answer, of course: yes. Yes, I can.
So what I did was create a scene of two pie slices atop their family flours, with the Romeo-pie, even though he knows that delicious Juliet may be the death of him, saying "Thou art my flour, sweet Juliet!"
Now, that's a love story we can all agree is totally sweet!
