Cherries Series Two 
Watercolor on Paper
2007

Oh so long ago!

Thank you EBSQart.com for selecting Cherries Series Two as "Art of the Day" today.  I painted this in 2007; one of a group of watercolor paintings I did that year.  I have not painted much in watercolor lately..... I might have to add that to my list of things to do.

Speaking of things to do~  It is that time again.  Leslie Saeta is doing the 30 in 30 Challenge in September.  Thirty paintings in Thirty days.  I have signed up and will be doing my best to keep up.  The paintings will be posted here daily and at her daily blog "Slices of Life"  She asked us to pick a theme for the month~  I think mine is "Try to Keep UP!!!  I do plan on painting my favorite things~ pears of course!  On the short list to do first~ still life fruit, ballerinas, landscapes, and I may throw in some flowers~  

Check back starting tomorrow and see how far I get!

I love this one!  I should paint oranges more often.  It was fun to paint and so hungry painting, I ate the prop before I was finished.   That is why I paint so many pears.  I don't like pears and don't eat them, so they last for several paintings~
