The Rainier cherries brought a little sweet inspiration into our studio this week.
These delicious cherries are in season and when a beautiful bowl of them sat on our studio table we couldn’t resist photographing them. One in particular just seemed to be smiling a shiny smile that begged to be snapped up in a photo.
The photo led to further inspiration. Marybeth took one look at this bright faced fellow and broke out her dusty paints. He just had to be captured on canvas! Here’s a peek at her first rough study that we’ll use as inspiration for upcoming artwork. It’s a nice reminder that inspiration really is everywhere!
This simple photo has started a new movement in our studios. We’ve been pulling out our sketchpads, watercolors, pastels and paints. All because of a little cherry!
These delicate, soft blushing cherries are sweet reminders of how one creative idea often generates another creative idea. A photograph initiated this little painting, but the original inspiration came from the Creator himself. And a bowl of His freshly picked cherries is a sweet reminder of just how creative God really is.
Right down to the last freckle faced cherry.
“…the whole earth is full of His shining-greatness.” Isaiah 6:3
