Life IS a bowl of cherries!

This weekend I went to an open painting night. This little guy was about 2.5 hours from start (thumbnail sketch and color studies) to finish. There were lots of great setups, but the cherries caught my eye first - bright and cheery. It's strange for me to paint outside my studio, and without much preparation, but it was a great exercise. It was fun to see so many people happily painting and drawing.
