Tarte Tatin

I made this last night, since I had the pears I'd been using for subjects for some of my paintings. I just couldn't let them go to waste! (This is how my pastry loving brain works).

It's a French dish - basically an upside down apple pie - although in this case is was a mixture of pears, apples, and cranberries.

Did I mention my husband is French? I'd love to paint some of his beautiful French country cooking. The food is as beautiful as it is delicious...


  1. Ok, now I'm hungry. Also, that cherry is perfect! And I really like the reflected plate color in the shadow.

  2. Thanks, Kathleen! It was a lot of fun to paint!

  3. Ummmm. Great painting and sounds delicious.
