At least I think that is what it is. My eye was caught by a dish heaped with these little pies in the deli case at the Acme and I bought one on impulse,to paint, attracted by its beautiful shape and color. The little sign next to the plate said "Knishes, $1.99 each". However, the director at the gallery where I show my paintings, could not identify what it was, although she liked the painting enough anyway to retain it after my recent show. Other mysteries: I have never again seen these so-called knishes offered at the Acme. Also, the original for this painting is still whole and pristine after a month of sitting in my studio. I am kind of afraid of it now.
