In the Cherry Orchard

In the Cherry Orchard
Oil on panel, 10x8
Door County, Wisconsin
As I rounded the turn on F Hwy, this beautiful orchard caught my attention.  In this field I spotted one of my artist friends already set up with her easel!  I pulled off the road to visit her, and took some great reference photos to paint from.  These cherry orchards were dotted all over Wisconsin!  I had never seen one before - so this was a real treat!  They have cherry wine, cherry beer, cherry jelly, cherry butter - absolutely all things cherry in Wisconsin!  They even had Cherry Festivals scheduled in various towns - and the cherry pie was to die for!  It is so fun to experience the local culture.  This painting makes 218 in 218 days.
