Cup O' Cherries

Oil on board, 6" x 6"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.

We went to the Cove Cherry Festival Saturday--small town fun in a park-like setting. There were booths full of handcrafted arts, homemade baked goods and tickets for quilt raffles and barbecues. Local musicians fingered guitars on the open-mic stage while kids clambered onto the miniature train for a spin around the grounds.

Our chief goal was to get some fresh cherries, and we bought these large deep-purple beauties fresh from the local orchards. It doesn't get any better than that.

Yes they do, Candy. I have to paint fast because they don't last long. Thanks for the visit.
