Sea Gull Painting

11x14 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg

We went to the east coast this summer for a Bible conference in Asheville, North Carolina.  Then we traveled on to North Myrtle Beach and south to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. We visited the beach on numerous occasions.  I enjoyed the little sea gulls. I'm sure they can be quite annoying to the people who live around the beach, but being from Oklahoma I became entertained by them.  This is one of the first paintings I have done with them as subjects.  This little guy had just shook the water off his back and his feathers were a little ruffled, but I loved the feathers on his head.  He looked like he had a spiked hairdo (laugh).  You can find this painting here.

Tomatoes on a Window Sill - Food Painting

11x14 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Four tomatoes are the subject of this medium sized painting.  Food paintings create a comfortable decor in many kitchens; however, my interest in painting them goes a little beyond kitchen decor.  Every time I have set tomatoes up for a still life composition to paint....the reflections and colors of the fruit have created such visual excitement that I am inspired over and over again.  This painting is listed in my Etsy shop.  Click tomatoes to see more details.
