Part 1: Italia Comida, Piece II: Pranzo, Capri Pizza 

My Cousin, Taylor and I slipped away from our little group for a day and explored the island of Capri. Although it was a quick little trip exploring this gorgeous island, we were able to wander and get lost in some of the quieter streets and alleyways. We peeked through fences to see stunning courtyards and took in all of the unique doorways to these island homes. Not to mention the terrifyingly amazing chairlift which seemed to take us up to the heavens where there was no demarcation between the sea and sky. The two spaces just melted together. And to top it all off we had the most delicious pizza. I am not sure what number this pizza was (maybe our 3rd or 4th?), nonetheless, there is something about the thin bubbly pizza dough covered in spots! I had to document it in all of its olive, basil goodness.

About the Collection: A Note From the Artist

The most precious memories and conversations happen around the table with a meal, a melted popsicle or a couple of slices of leftover bacon in the toaster oven. Hey, when you know you know! These meals do not have to be over the top (although I do love a gourmet dish), but oftentimes are the simplest, with the most significance.  

I find that more and more I draw connections to people through different foods, flavors, and scents. When I prepare a meal, snack, or even beverage for myself or my family I am reminded of who I shared these with in the past. These memories have become more and more precious as people I have loved, respected, and cherished have moved on…or even started to grow up.

This series of paintings may seem simple, or reminiscent of pop art ideals; but, for me, they focus more on connections. Connections to people, cultures, seasons, experiences and keeping this in the forefront of my thoughts. This “plate” series will be released every Friday for the next couple of months through McIntosh Cottage Antiques.
