A Bumper Crop - Tiny Treasures #19 & #20
Cherry Harvest in Washington State is risky business with sudden rain storms and hail, then unbearable heat, threatening to split those still on the trees. But this year we had a bumper crop and when my husband brought home a sack of ripe bings, I couldn't resist the challenge of painting them.
I wasn't sure if I could actually make them appear shiny, delicous and the right color, my goal for these two tiny treasures, but when I step back, I've accomplished just that! They look good enough to pluck off the page and pop in my mouth.
These two studies would look awesome together,
above a sidetable or in your breakfast nook.
