Still Life with Handmade Bowl and Cherries

Private Collection

Recently, my very sweet and thoughtful niece, Holly, gifted me with this beautiful, handmade bowl. I love it, and I couldn't wait to paint it. So, when I saw that cherries were in season, they felt like a fun fit for it.

This week, I am planning and packing for Abbey Ryan's workshop in Sedona. It will run from May 18 through May 22, 2015. I am so looking forward to a week of painting, painterly fellowship and beautiful Sedona. I will try to take lots of photos for you.

Have a great Monday!

The cherries and the bowl were made for each other, they look so beautiful together!!! I hope you have a great time, I am green with envy. : )

I also love to paint things that are personal to me... Like the marbles, which belonged to my Nan who is no longer with us... This is such a gorgeous painting! And those cherries look good enough to eat! :0)
