Cherry On Top

The phrase “cherry on top” makes me think of an ice cream sundae or something sweet like that. As for me personally, I have never cared for the preserved red cherry on top, but I do enjoy fresh cherries immensely. Besides the obvious Christian theme, maybe that is what this picture is about. Enjoy and here is the official definition for the phrase according to the Oxford dictionary.

“A desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.”       Fits this picture very well, don’t you think.

Have a Heart?

This week’s theme at Illustration Friday is “Heart”. Kind of a nebulous theme, but for my inspiration I browsed through some heart-shaped images done by Jim Dine, a wonderful pop-style artist and superb printmaker. Here I found hearts in a row, which became the central them of this picture. Hope you enjoy.
