Bowl of cherries

Cherries in a Bowl 6x6 oil, copyright 2011

This one was inspired by a Yooper friend of mine - though my plain white bowls with blue trim are not nearly as interesting as her vintage Pyrex.  For those who don't know, a "Yooper" is someone from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - and cherries are big business in Michigan.

This biggest challenge for me on this one was in making each cherry stand out from the others and not have a big blob of dark red red.  They were also very dark - I prefer the taste of black cherries, though their color doesn't make them easy to paint.
