    Yummm I love cherries! I think you have the right amount of brushwork and details here and it’s an interesting composition by being fairly close up.

    I think this is lovely…love your more impressionistic ones too, but this seem just right for your subject.

    Fabulous! I love the warm rich colors of this – such a nice change from the blue you always seem to see paired with cherries. And your paint handling is perfect for the subject – the thick over thin gives it an added dimension that is really nice.

    (I apologize is this posts more than once – it doesn’t seem to be submitting, but then you know how that works! Later I’ll find out it posted 12 times!)

    Beautiful work, Karen! You did such a wonderful job capturing the refelction in the copper surface. And what a wonderful find at the garage sale!

    Hi Karen

    I’m getting back from a long break and wow you sure have grown in your art leaps and bounds. I’m amazed at your oils. They look like you are enjoying them. Beautiful copper reflections.

    This is wonderful, Karen, the reflections in the bowl are amazing and the missing cherry idea is superb!

    I would see a tarnished copper bowl. An artist sees potential. It’s lovely.

    As for the missing cherry, perhaps the speed of light is not as fast as we think. A naughty little boy stole the cherry before its reflection could be caught in the bowl!

    You always do spectacular work, Karen. This is no exception. What a great idea for the IF theme! And the painting itself is simply gorgeous!
