"The Cherry Gang" - 16 x 8"



My latest painting, "The Cherry Gang", has just been added to my Etsy shop. I really loved painting this one. My goal for this painting was not to do it quickly, but rather try and focus on each brushstroke, and why it needed to be there. All too often, I get wrapped up in the tiny details. This time, I stood back and squinted a lot, thinking before I applied paint to the canvas. I wanted it to remain fresh and loose, and I was very happy with the final result! :)

This Original oil painting can be purchased through my Etsy shop for $150.
