I was looking around the house for another object for the "old stuff" series. A friend who was staying with us suggested this sieve. The challenge was the mesh part. Luckily, the texture of the cotton canvas was mesh like enough to take care of that problem, otherwise I wouldn't have known what to do.

Red Carnation

Back to a very dark background. It seems I lean toward the extremes of a very light or very dark background. Perhaps, a mid-tone is in order soon.

Two Cups

Ok, I promise, this is the last cherry painting -- at least for a while. The top cup was actually initially angled towards me but I was having a bad ellipse day so I angled it away. Bad ellipse days are much worse than bad hair days.

Tall Pear

I am making use of those few cherries I bought. Think I can get one more painting out of them.
