Starting Line

Click Here to Bid

Here is my painting for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge: the Paint What You Paint With Challenge.
Tomorrow my family is flying to Germany where we will stay for a month. We will be back August 2nd, and after I get some sleep and recover a little from jetlag (a day or 2) I'll ship all the paintings that sold while I was gone (I apologize in advance for that inconvenience). If you missed the info the first few times, we go to Germany to visit my husband's birth-mother, whom he found a few years ago. She lives in a 400 year old farmhouse in the Black Forest with 4 horses, 2 cats, 2 bunnies and a dog. We are looking forward to seeing her again!

Carol, I get the concept. Too bad the ego-maniacal cherries don't.

I am always amazed how you have a way of making inanimate object look like they are alive with tons of personality. How do you do that?
