For an artist and a foodie like me….. “the cherry is a real feast for the eyes as well as for taste”.
In late April, the craggy cherry trees explode with thousands of soft colored blossoms and by mid June, the trees are filled with bright red sweet fruit…. all ready to harvest.
The cherry tree is a real feast for the eyes as well as for taste….. so little wonder that they show up in my artworks and my kitchen!
My love of cherries prompted me to paint a still life.
Firm bright red cherries are contrasted by the softer mellow peaches bathed in a soft light against deep shadows.
