Always an admirer of Claus Oldenberg's Spoonbridge and Cherry, I thought I would do a playful cherry piece myself as part of my box series.
As I said in the last post, I actually composed this ages ago, but hadn't started on it. I took loads of photos and then changed some things up using photoshop. This is a great advantage of working with photos rather from life... sometimes you just want to get to the drawing part and not the composing.
I am posting this at such an early stage so you all know I am working!
The end result will be 12 x 16, the same as this other box piece I did, which I can't seem to find in a blog post. Weird! I must not have blogged it, so I guess I will now. I rushed to have this done for my Open Studio last month, and it hasn't left the studio yet to be shown in a gallery, I just received the frame in the mail the other day. The application is somewhat Illustrative looking, but having lived with it on the wall of the studio for a while now, the shallow depth of the box is rather convincing, which is what I love about the box pictures!
