Rollie Pollie Cherries

"Rollie Pollie Cherries"
watercolor (4.5"x 9.5")

Last Friday...I got to paint with Dana Cooper's oil painting class.  Often Dori Dewberry is there too, so it makes for a lovely day: painting, catching up and just plain ol' getting out of my "painting vacuum". When I join them...I always take advantage of the still lifes they have set up. On Friday Dana had a bag of cherries that I could play with. Trying to rid myself of the residual control issues I have, I took a handful of cherries and threw them haphazardly out on the green cloth...adjusted the lighting a bit...and painted away.
