Cherries anyone?

"Cotton Candy Cherries"
5"h x 7"w
acrylic and collage on canvas
available in my Etsy shop here

Here's a new still life that I just finished today. I know it has kind of an unusual title but it really does make me think of cotton candy! I'm trying to let it flow a little more with my titles anyway...rather than just a boring 'ol "Four Cherries" or something.

I came across the blog of one of my very favorite painter's for the first time today, Kate McPhee. If you don't already know about her then you should because I think she is such a talent! Her paintings are bright and beautiful and have wonderful uplifting meaning to them. James and I purchased three of her paintings when we first moved to Boulder and we love them even more today. Check out her Etsy shop too when you get a chance.

Hope you're having a good Monday out there! xox

Linda:

I see you've got your new blog up. I love it! When I have more time, I'll have a closer look at all that I have missed. I have been away from blogland for the last two weeks due to my mom's declining health.
