My Latest Painting

Hey, I am thrilled to show you my latest painting.  It is still wet, but I wanted to show you.  I hope you like it.  I like to name my paintings, but so far, this one is nameless.  If you have any suggestions, please leave them in our comments section.  I have one little idea, but it might be inappropriate.



Cherry photo

This is the photo.  The back story is that I was eating away on this bowl of cherries a few weeks ago, and all of a sudden, I decided it might make a good painting.  So, I got out my camera and tripod and did a little photo session on the kitchen table top.  Now are you ready for the painting?

Cherry Painting

Voila!  How did I do?  The painting is on a 11 x 14 canvas that I will have framed in the dark brown family.



Cherry Painting

Here is the side by side.  You can see that I changed the background.  I love the combination of red and brown, and this was a good opportunity to use it.  If you would like to see my other paintings, you can go here, here, here, and  here.

    Great job! I love how you treated the shadows of the cherries on the counter. Your cherries look tastier than the real ones!

    Great job! I could never do that! You should see the Lion my son painted in school. It is awesome! I will have to do a post about it soon! You inspired me!

    Oh, this may be your best yet. Take your time naming it because it deserves a proper name. I have zero talent, but I love watching. I also like your chicken painting.
