Clipped Cherry

Clipped Cherry by Jean Reece Wilkey, oil on panel, 4×4 in.

For a long time I’ve been fascinated with hanging objects; with items poking into the painting or hanging from some unseen source. I’d been incorporating hung and pinned items in my larger works for a while when someone pointed out to me the still-life paintings of the Spanish artist Juan Sanchez Cotan. Of course I loved his work at once!  Here is a hanging cherry I did for the Indra’s Net installation. | Available
