5x7 Oil on Canvas Panel
$100 + $8 shipping - Email Me to inquire about purchasing options.
I hadn't painted cherries prior to this painting. I am very happy with how it turned out. The fabric they were sitting on was plain so I improvised and added the white highlights. Some look like leaves to me and others look like butterflies. I have been preoccupied with many details that have prevented me from painting as much as I ordinarily do and I am feeling it. I'm never really happy unless I have spent time in my studio. Hopefully I'll pull my act together this week and get back on track.
