Just a bowl of Cherries
Oil on board 10x12'
Bridget Hunter 1996
I'm needing a 10 x 12" frame for a new painting and hoped to reuse one. I'd forgotten this painting hanging on the stair wall and the frame was just the thing. I then realised that it was probably one of the first ever oil paintings I did way back in 1996. Looking at it now I think there are too many hard edges and why did I make that diagonal of blue? I remember trying so hard to get the ellipse right - I hate painting ellipses. And there's a rash of blue highlights going on!
Its been interesting to see how my work has changed, though obviously I've always been inspired by colour! I think people are right when they advise us to keep old work and sometimes look back to see the changes.
