Winter is here in eastern NC with a vengeance- what? 32 for a daytime high. no painting outside today, so i went to the grocery store to find something to paint and these little Bing cherries caught my eye. the luscious red, shiny and transluscent skin was irresistable. i love to eat em and they are so much fun to paint.

When choosing the color combo for this one i knew i wanted green to be in the mix (red's complement) but didnt want to be so simplistic. so i went with blue-green in the bowl. gives it that little zing i think this one has.
i'll be doing a few more cherry paintings in the next few days, while the Bings look (and taste) so good, and while its freezing outside.
