As I was in the process of painting this piece, it all felt oddly familiar, but I didn't realize why until I looked at my previous daily painting, which was a red apple. Cherries have nearly the same visual qualities as apples; lustrous, reflective, deeply and intensely colored - these qualities can make for a dramatic painting.
