Cherry Pie Anyone? Tiny Treasure #21

You'll be seeing several more cherry studies coming from my studio. These little gems offer such a great opportunity to create fun compositions and experiment with colors on the plates that hold the cherries and the reflections of color on them.

I was attracted to this grouping because the stems create a sort of tension, drawing your eye in 3 different directions at once. The abstract design on the plate is in direct contrast to the definite roundness of the cherries.

Check out the detail – how fun the brushstrokes are. This piece pretty much painted itself as my kitten, CoCo, and I watched! After I was done, I let her up to investigate the cherries and she carried one off in her mouth! I found it two days later under our ottoman!
