Absolutely beautiful, Jeanne!

Thank you so much, Tracy! I am always drawn to anything that shows signs of age like this old bucket, cracked wall and rusted nails -- they all bespeak lifetimes of use. The cherries of course are the main subjects, which I painted in glowing contrast to the muted setting. Thank you again, Tracy, for your lovely comments! Jeanne

Thank you SO much, Mary Liz! There's something powerful about red, particularly in glistening cherries! Jeanne
