Reflections in Red

Raise your hand if cherries are one of your favourite fruits!  (I am raising two hands)

Reflections in red shows off the super glossy surface of both the cherries and the tin foil, creating a dreamy world of colour and shine.  Cherries are the ultimate portable snack food and one source said they contain Melatonin, which is a natural hormone responsible for regulating the sleep cycle in our bodies.  Supposedly tart cherries have a higher percentage of melatonin when compared with sweet cherries, but who cares, I like them both.

Love your shiny cherry painting, Kim. Count me in the cherry-loving group. I often eat them chipmunk style - one in each cheek.

Love the way the red from the cherries bounces and reflects in the foil. The ones you do like this always convey so much energy!
