Why Knickerbocker Glory?
As I set about painting this series I had luxury ice cream on my mind ... for some reason the creamy blend of colours kept me thinking of smoothies and berries and then pops of fruit, some little bits of crunch. Then it struck me: the full ice cream sundae and more ... Wikipedia defines a Knickerbocker Glory as " …a layered ice cream sundae that…may contain ice cream, cream, fruit, and meringue. Layers of these different sweet tastes are alternated in a tall glass and topped with different kinds of syrup, nuts, whipped cream and often a cherry." This is a perfect metaphor.
My new series is scrumptious, smooth, creamy, and whipped but also broken up, layered with citrus bursts and crisp meringue contrast ... and sometimes a cherry on top!
