Country Pies is the second piece of Dream Puzzle, a five panel mural created by artist Dennis Larkins. Moonalice fans who attended the Pacific Grove’s Good Old Days Festival on April 13, 2013 might recognize the art as Moonalice poster M568, created for the first day of a weekend-run in beautiful downtown Pacific Grove California.
As with all of Dennis’ paintings, they are three dimensional, literally jumping out at you. Dennis took some process photos of Country Pies to give us a glimpse at his creative process, something he has never revealed to the public before. He starts by laying out the visual content first, followed by the 3-D layer buildup, and finishing with the addition of color.
Nothing says “Good Old Days” like apple pie at the diner, add in a giant friendly cow nosing through the kitchen window and you’ve got yourself a Festival!– Dennis Larkins
