Cherry Pie

In the style of Karin Jurick, who does gorgeous paintings, here's a small cherry pie slice done in oils on masonite. It's only 6" by 8", so I'd consider it a quickie painting, but it's one of my best so far, I think. The nice thing about working so small is that you can have your model right in front of you, and lay the masonite right on the drafting table in front of the model. So close you can smell the cherries, and really stick your nose in the colors and shadows. I will definitely do more of these small, quick studies.

Love you painting and let's hear it for small works! I love the idea of looking at something really close up and capturing on a small surface. Nice work. Like the ear as well.

Wow, this is really good. I love the highlights on the cherries and the way the filling is dripping out a bit.

This is a wonderfully convincing study- the crust looks flakey, the filling is wet and luscious, and all around, it makes me hungry!

Looks nice. I like the texture and golden colors in the crust. and it is very stylized, which I respect as well.

really like this piece as well, but maybe i'm especially drawn to it b/c i like cherry pie or maybe it's your explanation of the technique!

great job!
