"Cherries", Oil on Canvas, 16" x 16"
I have to admit, I attempted to make this a witty post and try to tie the cherry subject and St.Patrick's Day together. Alas, Google only gave me recipes for cherry pie and trivia on Michigan (the state is the leading producer of cherries in the United States by 75%, just in case you were wondering).
I'm not quite sure what draws me to cherries. It could be the fact that they are often accompanied by whipped cream and hot fudge, their overly cheery color, or better yet the fact that they invoke some 1950's red nail polish color that I am always tempted to use (on the rare occasion I am not covered in paint). Regardless, this painting makes me happy, and has inspired me to do a bunch of little 8" x 10"s to be sold on Etsy (shameless plug).
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all.
