"Cherryguards" - SOLD


This is another pre-block painting. They are Rainier cherries and they are protecting the cute little white bowl I found recently at Pier 1. I just loved the colorful reflections on the outside of the bowl. My block has coincidentally coincided with a bunch of non-painting work that has to be done, so I have taken some good advice and abandoned my studio for the last couple of days. It feels wrong, but it is also nice to take a break. I will return, refreshed, tomorrow.

Lovely painting, Carol. All will be well in a few days, good luck with the non-painting work. Your wonderful book travels with me and is a continual source of inspiration.

This is delicious, I love red. You will get all fired up at your workshop. Dina is so lovely and it is such a great place to paint! Have a good time.

Take your time girlfriend. How you manage to post everyday while taking a break is beside me! All that means is you are doing double work overtime when you are painting! You are simply amazing!

Gorgeous, Carol! You really nailed the color and shine of those cherries...I know because I am eating some right now and I held one up to my monitor and it looks like it jumped right out of your painting ;-)

How's the studio coming along? Post some photos, won't you, please?

I never tire of your orangey reds and blue/turquoise color combinations, so vibrant.

The stems terminate in an interesting way; they do seem out in the air, surrounded by light.

Beautiful! I love oranges and blues! You do so much with color contrasts. So happy to find your blog! About the holder...you have a patent? You must. It is something! Thanks for the inspiration. Peace and all good things for you, your husband, and your students in creativity and in life! Sincerely,

Diane

Dear Carol,

Thank you so much for having the courage to be honest. I really appreciate the struggle, the brief time I have been on your "Daily Painting" blog you have made it look easy and fun. While I know that is true - I understand and can relate to the growing pains. I am trying to do a Daily Painting it is a challenge. Thank you again. Teresa

I follow your work very closely and basically love everything you do. You are incredibly gifted. Just studying one of your paintings is a learning experience.

love your use of reds in this painting. Along with the blue and those wonderful shadows the whole piece sings. Good job.
