Red Apples and Cup Towel

8x8 Oil on Canvas
by
Cheri Wollenberg

This painting features two bright, juicy, red apples resting on a colorful print cup towel.   I was inspired to paint this daily painting by the cup towel that somehow shows up in my paintings once in a while (grin).  It is funny how we have our favorite items and paint them over and over.  I just happened to have some bright, red and juicy apples to place on the cup towel and they became my focal point.  My fabric still may be a little intense.  I tried to subdue it somewhat, but all and all I am pleased.

Oh my gosh...I love this. The sheen on the apples, the print on the linen, the dark background...absolutely beautiful!

You should be pleased Cheri! This little gem is really beautiful with a well thought out design and color!

The apples make me want to take a bite and the tea towel is beautifully done. The floral pattern does not overwhelm and does look like a pattern on a fabric... not an easy thing to convey.

I keep coming back to this painting. Is it still for sale, and if it is, how can I contact you?

Cheri Wollenberg said...

Sue, I have sold that little painting! I didn't have an email address to use to contact you. Sorry, but I so appreciate your sweet comment and inquiry. I hope you visit my blog again. Thanks, Cheri.
