Sweet Still Life

I hope you all had a wonderful week!
Last Monday, we went cherry picking
and we've found some TADA! ways to
use up all those cherries.

It's unfortunate that cherry season

So blah.

It's this reason why I decided to

As a child, I liked to paint but I
never did after that.

Secretly, I think I wanted to again.
I frequented art supply stores, little by little,

because, "I'll paint again one day."

And TADA!, I finally did!

This is called, "Cherry Branch".

This one's called "A Bowl of Cherries".

I know I'm no Picasso but I think summer is
the best time to try something new.

I hope you're slowly crossing off
those exciting things on
your summer list!

Have an exciting weekend!
