"St. Joseph's Pastry" Alla Prima Painting

Oil on linen on panel, 4" x 4", "St. Joseph's Pastry"
This alla prima painting is 4x4", painted on linen mounted on panel. The panel is notched on the back, so that it can be hung on the wall without any framing.

One of the lesser known facts about St. Joseph is his status as the patron saint of pastry cooks, as well as patron saint of families. This St. Joseph's pastry is a riff on a Zeppole di San Guiseppe (as he is known in Italy). He is celebrated at Spring solstice with a Feast, traditionally held on March 19th. It is so delicious though, they are eaten year round.
