THE JUBILANT CHERRY TREE ~ I just did this one last weekend and it's an ACEO size (2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches) painted in a surreal style. It is painted with acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper. Have you ever tasted the delicious dessert called 'cherries jubilee' and do the trees the cherries are harvested from have to be happy? This little tree appears to be happy and is gladly giving up it's fruit for this tasty dessert! I listed this on on e-bay. I wanted to paint more than one last weekend but I just ran out of time. The other one I painted isn't finished and is in the 'doo-doo' stage right now!
Is anyone into genealogy, tracing your roots and seeing who your ancestors were? There's a family website I belong to that are descendants of my late Father and Grandmother's people the Yadons, and I just found out I was veeerrry distantly related to the late Marlon Brando!!! http://www.genealogy.com/famousfolks/marlonb/ OMG I've been having fun with that one and I teased my husband that he had better be nice to me from now on since he was the famous actor who had starred in the 'Godfather' movies LOLOL! I actually never even watched those movies because I don't care for violence in movies but I may have to now. His mother was a Pennebaker (Pennsylvanian German) and my ggggg?grandfather was married to one of the Pennebakers. Cool stuff! I told my daugher and she hardly knew who he was and her boyfriend said, who's Marlon Brando?? :) Oh well I was excited about it!
