Another for my show. The thing with cherries is that they are so shiny and reflective. Whenever I paint them there is a point when I think, "this is terrible" then I remember that they don't start to look like cherries until you get to the point where you can paint the reflections and highlights. Then, amazingly, they change from cherry shaped blobs into cherries.
I didn't paint much today, because Fridays my students come. Did I tell you I have 2 students? One comes weekly and the one every other week. My student today did really well, I can see real progress. That's so exciting. When someone in a class or workshop starts to "get it" and you know that you helped them.
