Loving Cherries

5" x 5"  (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm)  
Acrylic on stretched canvas


I made some progress on the “hands” painting, but then I decided to set it aside for a while, because it wasn’t going very well… maybe a break will help. :)

So I went to tackle the painting challenges from my favorite sites. What a productive day I had yesterday! I was stuck inside for all the rain, and it felt so good to paint and be creative!
These cherries are for the Lela Stankovic’s challenge.  I liked the way they lean on each other, almost seems like they are rubbing their foreheads together, thus the title.

One must ask children and birds
how cherries and strawberries taste.
