"Life in White" - SOLD


This is my last painting of cherries in white (a nice combination, I think). I want to point out here that I used a softer, whiter light than usual (not the "daylight" spotlight I generally use), as I find it works better for cherries in some situations. Cherries and flowers both.

The foreshortening on the spoon is perfect. As is the glint on the end of it. I truly admire how you juggle reality and illusion of paint. And how you juggle family life with artistic life. You are a wonder.

Really beautiful, Carol! Love those little cherries. Wonderful whites in those cups. And the foreshortened handle on the spoon is great!

Love this as cherries are my fav! I will have to try the different light now. I always learn so much from you- and appreciate that! I like that spoon off the edge...
Take care and travel back safe.

Love this one. It's really amazing how rich white can be. I'm also surprised at how well it works with the center of interest nearly in the middle of the composition. Rules really are made to be broken....

Looks like so much fun! I miss my snowy hometown. I live on the coast of British Columbia (canada) now so we're lucky if get any snow at all.
