This is my painting, Cherries. I hope to display it in my art exhibit in August 2010. I say “hope to display” because it is still on sale at my Etsy internet shop. I loved the red reflections on the tree’s branches from the cherries. I also liked the strong light coming from the left side that allowed me to model the cherries and branches. (A technique that allows objects on a flat surface to appear in the third dimension with the use of value, temperature and color (hue) in light, middle tone and shadow.) This painting has color as my theme and style.
