"Pass The Cherries"



















10 x 10" oil on canvas panel  SOLD

I've painted these little elephants before but they
are so cute that I just had to do it again.
This time I
thought I'd get playful with them and let them toss

around some toys.

So well painted Gwen, you can really see that these are ceramic elephants and the cherries too look ripe and juicy.

You paint these guys so well. And the circle shapes in the fabric repeating in the cherries is a nice touch. (And it really cute too)

Gwen, These elephants are painted so well. The contrast of the ceramic against the real fruit is outstanding. And darn clever of you too!

What a little gem, Gwen. With so much going on in this painting, you deftly kept the focus on the elephants and their playfulness. Love it.
