Too many cherries to deal with. The apricots waited a little to catch two cherries in a corner ;) - Bon appetit!

This one was fun to do - Go to the blog "Inspiration All Around Us" to see other paintings by different artists

Sorry for the glare. I took the photo with external light but the sun is coming from above ;(

Who am I?

Browing some fellow artist blog I stumble upon a link - Made the quizz and got something.
Am I really like that - Not so sure. But I keep smiling.

Your rainbow is intensely shaded yellow, brown, and green.


What is says about you: You are a joyful person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality. You feel closer to people when you understand their imperfections.

Tramway / trolley back to town

"old San Francisco trolley" -oil on board 27x16"

From the blog
"A day Not Wasted" from Lee Brown another painting Challenge.

This is an opportunity to paint something out of my daily life.
All the time I painted this one, I thought about young boys and their addiction to Firemen and red firetrucks. Still smiling ;))

Portovenere - Liguria Italy

Oil on paper 7x14"

To many buildings on the ref - As I did a full harbour of this type a few years ago, I decided to limit myselk an crop a large amount. So Only a boat and a half and five buildings

No time to take a Seat or Running Mom

The benches were too difficult so I took only the legs of the lady and pasted over some crimson to simulate the bench.
