Life is just a Bowl of Cherries

The new season cherries are seeming to leap off the shelves of the supermarket into my basket. Once home they gravitate to the studio where I am trying to home my still life technique, not the easiest of subject matter. To add to the complication I found a small pewter whisky measure to add to the arrangement of fruit. Challenging but enjoyable session.

Great work Mick. The rich color of the cherries and the high contrast are dramatic. I'm surprised the cherries lasted long enough for you to paint them. They are delicious this year! :-))

Thanks Linda - they didn't last long, started with them and left the pot till last. Best year in a while for cherries.

The colours are wonderful and that shine of light on the jug and cherries is really nice.

What a lovely painting Mick. Sorry I have not been on your blog for a while, but life has been pretty grim for 6 months, but am getting back into the real world again.
