What are the birds eating this year? I don’t know, but it isn’t the cherries on the two small trees near the entrance to the marina where we live. We have enjoyed cherry pudding cake and cherry pie, and today I decided to paint the cherries on the tree. I should have done this yesterday, before I picked the cherries for the pie. The trees had been loaded with cherries and I enjoyed the contrast of the complementary reds and greens. So, although there are still many cherries on the trees, I did have to imagine some of them back in their places to make this picture.
I also took more than my goal of one hour to paint this. I got busy with the shapes and colors and lost track of time. In the future, I should set a timer.
