Three Plus One - sold

oil 6x6 inches
private collection Orange, California

My husband laughed Sunday morning in the produce section of the grocery store when I said, "I knew there were cherries in the stores, 'cause I've seen them in people's paintings." They came from Chile, and they're big and very dark. It's curious how odd numbers are more interesting to the eye than even. Wonder why that is? Even more curious, here are four cherries, but the eye sees them as two odd numbered groups...more interesting than if there were just four in the dish.


  1. Beautiful painting Karen and you pose some very interesting questions. Why IS that???

  2. Your brushwork and colorwork is to die for! This looks like Valentine's Day to me :)

  3. I like how you separated the background into geometric shapes to add compositional interest. Beautifully done!

  4. I can't believe we had the same thought on the same day! It must be collective consciousness. I love this painting and the bowl is divine!

  5. The cherries are wonderful but it's the glass that really catches my eye-what a beautiful job on the base of it!
