This piece is a still life painting of three ripened cherries sitting on a gorgeous blue cloth. I had so much fun painting them and I'm so happy with how it turned out. I love the contrast between the rich red and the vibrant turquoise blue. I am almost tempted to keep this for myself!!

Getting to Know Malia

Malia Pettit sees her artistic process as an act of “liberating the paint” and “allowing for the unexpected to occur.” Her portraits of women stem from a fascination with glossy magazines and their portrayal of models, actors and celebrities. Her work has been especially influenced by Chantal Joffe and John Singer Sargent. She currently lives in California after having lived in England for ten years. When she’s not painting, she is a full-time mom and enjoys exploring estate sales, antique stores and used bookstores.
