On my easel today

CHERYL PEDDIE FINE ART

This painting is still in process on my easel. It’s a softer, quieter piece than some of the recent work I’ve done. Caught this image in my Uncle Ed’s kitchen.

I turn it upside down, ask friends to tell me what they think, take photos in black and white and put it in a new environment – anything to kind of pretend that I’m seeing it with ‘new eyes’!!

I do love painting.
