The Independent Trio by Christiane  Kingsley

love cherries with their bright lustrous colors! I also love painting lace..So, painting cherries on linen lace is a real pleasure! I even had a lot of fun setting up this still life in my studio…I have to admit that I had more cherries than this when I started taking the pictures:-) Those cherries were delicious!

    Wow stunning work. The reflection of light especially the bowl. Brilliant. You did well – there wouldn’t have been any cherries if I’d set that up! :)

  • Earthangel, thank you. There were no cherries left at the end of the photo session:-)
