The cherries are calling to me again!  I wanted to paint something with reds for the new year so I got all my images out and found some photos of cherries from a little "photo shoot" I had back when we had some fresh cherries at a nearby market.  I thought I might experiment in several ways so here are a few of my results.  I plan to post some more.  Both these paintings may be purchased on my etsy site at chatterboxart by simply clicking Cherries.

Cheri, I love your cherries! Especially the "group". Simple! We have had a few cherries in the market here in CA lately. They are a brighter red than the ones I get during the regular cherry season. I've been painting them too...there's something cheerful about cherry paintings. Happy New Year!

Just found your blog. Beautiful work and I look forward to exploring it further when time allows. I love "Piggy Pudding" - among others. It is so whimsical and cute. Your cherries are fantastic. I just painted cherries for the 1st time and they are not as easy as one would think! You did a great job! :-)
