A landscape today to change things up a bit after painting several fruit still lifes. I have to say, I love painting landscapes. Actually, I just love PAINTING. It doesn't matter what it is. Including the red flag thing-a-ma-bob on the mail box. Which is one of the things I painted today even though it was on hubby's to-do list and not mine. But since life is all about trade-offs, he kindly unloaded the dishwasher for me. : )
And before I forget, a big "Thank You" to my prop man, Nicholas, for providing me with the blue tractor for today's second photo.
Cherries have been my go-to favorite lately not only for eating, but also as a painting subject. It seems my family enjoys them immensely, as well. There have been a few times the cherries are gone before I get them to my studio. Which is why you haven't seen a whole lot of cherry paintings thus far. Don't worry, more are coming this week.
One more thing, please keep my dear, artist friend Carol Marine and her family in your prayers. They lost their home and studio to a fire over the weekend. Thankfully, they escaped, but have suffered a great deal of loss, nonetheless.
