Another still life similar to my last painting same format similar set up.
I'm just finishing up my last Koi painting and then it's back to more still lifes all 20" x 20" so that my Seattle gallery is well supplied.
Well here in the State that gets ample rain (Washington) and is normally very green, there hasn't been any of the wet stuff falling from the sky for at least a month just blue skies and sunshine, which of course is very nice too, but I'm sure the rest of the year will make up for it aplenty!

This is a definite departure from my normal subjects.
I was requested to paint some paintings with this theme for my new gallery here in Seattle. By coincidence a friend of my daughter has a pond with Koi fish and water lilies, when we phoned them to ask if they knew where we could find a pond, they thought that we were kidding! so on finding out we had hit the jackpot, we whizzed over there on a perfect summers day to get some reference photos. This is the first of 3. Hope you like, let me know what you think!

These luscious cherries bear the name of the breathtakingly beautiful Washington mountain Mt. Rainier. They are juicy and sweet and so pretty that I had to use them in a still life with these two copper items.
This photo of Mt. Rainier was taken by my daughter yesterday with her iphone as you can see we have brilliant weather!

This is the last animal painting for a while while I concentrate on other projects.
Painting while looking after a one year old grandson is a real challenge, and trying to get undisturbed painting time. Kai has 4 molars coming through and he seems to be not too bothered although he doesn't like chewing lumpy food at the moment, and then 4 cats who constantly want to be let in or out and one bringing home 'presents' all add to the chaos.
