|"Pie In The Sky Pizzeria," oil, 20"h x 16"w, ©Jill Banks 2012|
The name of the pizzeria is Pie In The Sky. That appealed to me.
As I stood there painting, I got a history lesson as well. One of my visitors told me that this used to be a bakery. His mom would clean it and he and his brother helped. Their reward was a biscuit from the bakery -- the best biscuits in the world. (Hopefully, the facts are right. I half listen while painting.)
