Two Cherries and White Cup

This is a high key painting - most of the values are light with just a small amount of dark value in a few shadows and in the dark shiny color of the cherries.  The high key makes the painting feel like a dazzling sunny scene, though in this case it's a dazzling bright spotlight to the right of my still life setup.  I like the looseness of the highlight on the lip of the cup- it feels as if the atmosphere around the highlight is vibrating with the light.  This one is going to Bainbridge Arts and Crafts in December.
