Another new addition to my Cherry series… the abstract background is meant to give the feeling of outdoors in summer, without being too literal…I am planning on doing 365 cherry paintings …some will be more realistically portrayed than others, but all will be different…I hope that you are enjoying them so far

Watercolour on Arches Hot Pressed Paper

In the cherry plucked at night,
With the dew of summer swelling,
There’s a juice of pure delight,
Cool, dark, sweet, divinely smelling.
Merry, merry,
Take a cherry;
Mine are sounder,
Mine are rounder,
Mine are sweeter
For the eater
In the moonlight
. Thomas Campion

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    This is stunning Janis, I particularly love the colours and textures of the BG in this one….I think “Ripe Cherries” is still my fav of the series, but this comes very close to it…

  • Thank you so much Stephie…lots Cherries more on the way.. :))
