Cherry and Rose
Wild cherry leaf, prematurely turning to autumnal bronze - wild cherries -
green rose hip and seeds .....
Rosa moyesii - maturing rose hips and flower.
This is a garden rose, native to western China .....
Cultivated cherries .....
Student painting !
" Still life with Cherries "
This was painted when I was a first year art student
in an early experiment with oil paints .
On the day I remember clearly that I thought I was doing quite well .
My tutor stood rather intimidatingly behind me for a few minutes, then said ,
" Hum, I think you need to improve on your technique " and walked off !
I've recently retrieved the painting from our attic. Looking at it now, decades later
I entirely aggree with the comment . Photographing it has brought it into the present
and I'm pleased and surprised to see an energy there which continues in
my current work .
Thank you for visiting
