Cherries


The prompt for Illustration Friday is "boundaries". Still life is only limited by what you have on hand to draw. Unlike having a person pose for you and worrying about their attention span or working outside on a landscape where the light is constantly shifting, a still life offers some measure of control. With that in mind, I plan on picking up some new subject matter at my farmer's market this afternoon.

so sunny and lively, I love it! The kind of whirlwind motion of the background blurrs out the boundaries a little ;)

This is just beautiful! I love the colors and patterns! Also wanted to let you know I just had a chance finally to post about the Sunshine Award. Thank you again:)

The detail is amazing in this and I love the visual metaphor for life. My mom has that 'life is a bowl of cherries' attitude and has known no boundaries when it comes to living life head on.

Beautiful Vicki, love the colour contrast and the movement in the patterned background really focusses your eye on the cherries
