Cherries update

After a few hours of quality time in the studio, I was able to finish the cherries today. I tuned into Pandora Radio, clicked on the Ella Fitzgerald station, made a cuppa Earl Grey Lavender and got busy. What a great afternoon to be working indoors,too. The temperatures have taken quite a dip today and the weather forecasters have projected snow for our area. We have had such a mild winter this season that a couple of inches on a weekend is fine with me. And, there are a couple of children in this house who will no doubt be hoping for a Saturday snowman.

I have yet to take a photo of the Cherry Trio with proper lighting but I did take a few pictures today as I worked.

(Here's the illustration after the stems had been detailed and the burnishing was completed.)

(A view from my studio space of the partial stained glass window that overlooks the garden. The snow was just beginning to cover the neighbor's roof.)

  1. The cherries are wonderful Rebecca - they look good enough to pluck right off the page/screen!! It's especially lovely to see them after reading your very nice comment on my blog. :)

    1. Thank you for the kind comment, Hedera! So glad you enjoyed the Ann Swan book. It's a good one.

  2. Oh Rebecca, these cherries really are looking scrumptious. Your stained glass windows are truly lovely, the cheeky little cherub especially.

  3. Lovely Cherries Rebecca! I particularly like the second image with the paper's edges. You then get to appreciate how amazing they are from 'a distance'. must have taken ages to get that depth of colour. Well done!

  4. Thank you so much SS and Jess. It's a long process for sure...Have to get framing done in the next few days. The library exhibit opens in just over a week.
