This is a 48x48” acrylic painting on a gallery thick, 1.5” cradle board. The idea for this big fruit piece, and toying with the idea of a big fruit series, came to me when eating dewy cherries out of a black bowl. The photographer in me just had to take a photo and when I saw the sharp contrast and pop of reflection that I made sharper with my flash and some photo editing, I knew I had to paint it. A conversation with my partner had me scaling up the size of the project to be the largest piece I’d painted yet. To say I deeply enjoyed this project would be a vast understatement!


The scene wraps around the side of the cradle board by a ¼”, the remaining thickness is raw, blonde wood. The entire piece, edges included, is double-coated in a satin varnish.

    Cleaning and care instructions:

    • Paintings get dusty from time to time, that’s okay! I recommend making a micro-fibre cloth lightly damp with clean water, and very gently running it over the area(s) in question.
    • When moving / working with canvases, it’s important to not let the work lean into anything etc. that could puncture, or distort the material.
    • When it comes to prints, I highly recommend handling them with clean, or gloved hands, even the oils on our skin can impact the sheen and colouring of prints.
