"Cherries and Creamer" Oil on 6x6 inch board

I painted these cherries the other day.  I had only the cherries and metal measuring cup, and when it was done, it seemed a bit empty, so I put it aside to think about what to do.  I decided to add the creamer, and it looks much better to me.  More complete.   Here are some pics of work in progress....

I decided to add one last cherry....  instead of placing it in the set up, I tried it out in front of the painting to see how it would look. 


  1. You have a mastery of realism of the still life, Debbie!

    The addition of the pot and the final cherry turned this into an excellent composition! well done!

  2. Thank you ever so much for showing us the progress of this little painting. Love all of your work. Love how you checked the last cherry to see if it worked. Beautiful.
