These were called Rainier Cherries at the grocery...very pretty little things with yellow and red and most of them still had their stems. I was trying to do something with a different background color here (got out an old blue shirt and laid the cherries on it)...and really slapped on the paint for a more impressionist texture. I made myself back up and loosen the brush strokes. I honestly don't think this picture does it justice..much prettier in person.
There went Monday.....

Oh, I like this one so much! I can imagine how much more vibrant it is in person too!
