"Reaching Out" - SOLD


There's a story to this one (not that I would ever admit to JUST having thought it up). The spoon is the bad guy and he's holding the cherry (on the plate) captive. But the spoon is asleep at the moment, and while he has the chance, the other cherry is about to free the first cherry.

You're so funny! Now that you have set the story up, I noticed the Hero Cherry sneaking in.

Beautiful color combos. Love the Cad Yellow and red.

Love your jail-break narrative to go along with the painting. Funny!

I hope you're feeling better from the flu. You are the super-hero.

The bad old spoon is holding the cherry captive?...uh, Carol, how long has it been since you monitored the toxicity level of the solvents in your studio? S.l.o.w.l.y put the paintbrush down and open the window...

Love the squared effects you get on your fruits - do you put the light refelctions on after it has all dried by using liquin forst to coat the dried work ?

In any case - i love your pallete and teh grays you get. Superb!

Did the spoon wake up or was the rescue successful?
You are funny, Carol.
