Challenge Group member Michael Naples chose this month's subject, which was indeed a head scratcher for me.
I have a lot of favorite treats! Choosing just one to portray wasn't easy.
Besides, I've already painted a few of my favorites in the past.
It was worth it, though. I usually only make pecan pie for holidays, so having a fresh pie in our small household was indeed a treat. (It disappeared surprisingly fast!) I must say, those pecans on the top of the pie were quite a challenge to paint without getting too fussy.

Our Challenge Group is getting smaller these days. Two members have had to drop out for now to take care of family. We're already missing Silvina Day and Marie Fox in our monthly participation, but family is the most important.
