Cherry in a Yellow Bowl

I originally had a very dark background and hated it. After wiping it off I painted the light colors over the still dark wiped background and liked it. I guess there are "happy accidents" in oil too.
8 x 6 oil on Raymar Panel.


  1. Yes,there certainly are!! I love the abstract quality of the brushstrokes,and that cherry looks yum!!

  2. Very painterly, Carlene! "Happy accidents" abound in oils! The trick is in recognizing them so that they're not painted over...then, of course, being able to use them again when needed.

  3. Yes, the background is working really well. It balances the flowers nicely. Love the cherry!
    Have a happy creative week!
