"Cherry Hearts" a still life oil painting of valentines day candy hearts and chocolates

  
6 x 6"
oil on canvas

These little heart candies are like jelly beans, and all the different flavors are a variation on cherry: cherry cola, bing cherry, cherry cheesecake (my favorite), chocolate cherry, etc. They are darn good, and dangerous to have lying around the studio! The title "Cherry Hearts" does double duty here, since these bon-bons have cherries inside. Proof of that, coming soon!

I am featured today on the blog "The Art Room" as part of a series of daily painters' favorite pieces from 2012. You can see my top two picks, as well as Taryn's picks - we each chose one still life and one figure painting.

I love the subtle shadows and the modelling on the hearts and chocolates. Very cool painting.
