Cherry Tomatoes

"Cherry Tomatoes"
6x6 oil on gesso board
When the time comes to give my paintings a title I often think of music. In this case I'm singing "Cherry, Cherry, who can I turn to",  by Tommy Tutone, while I'm painting thinking, I've got a great title. 
Except, it's "Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to, 867-5309"  Why?  Don't ask ;) I can't explain the way my mind works.
I have five people signed up for my Painting a Day class at the VonLiebig Center tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Still room to sign up for my last class on Thursday, April 26th. Hope to see you there.
