In this series, I combine several of my loves: friends, painting people from life and, of course, pizza. Pizza is a tool for me in this series. Everyone has a relationship to pizza so it is a good starting point when communicating. Pizza is also ridiculous; the shape, the texture, the ubiquity. Pizza gives me permission to take the painting less seriously. This loosens me up and I end up making a better and more complex painting by the end of it.
