In the early summer of 2015 Ken picked cherries, I made cherry cheesecake and our dog Annie Vick died
We found a very tall, old cherry tree on our property in Lewiston NY and last year it was laden with cherries, which Ken picked. I made cherry cheesecake for every event all spring and summer (from the cherries I had frozen). But our dog Annie Vick died during that time and this composition of items on our kitchen table and buffet is a memorial to her. In the way that a great meal after a funeral is a memorial to the deceased. This painting won the Cheap Joe's sponsored award at the juried Buffalo Society of Artists Spring exhibition in 2016.
