Piled High for the 4th of July, oil on canvas 8 x 10 available
Happy 4th of July!
Well if you couldn't tell I love to paint strawberries!
When they're under the spot light of my art lamp I can really smell that strawberry scent.... I think it's so hot that they might be cooking!
One of my favorite memories with my kids is to go strawberry picking every year. When we lived together in Glastonbury there were several berry picking farms but our favorite was Rose's Berry Farm. It was so picturesque tucked in a little valley very... Connecticut... very New England. We'd drive down a long driveway and hop on the big farm truck that drove us through the winding road back to the strawberry patch... or blueberry or raspberry. We would spend an hour or so filling up our long flat tray up to the very top... the kids would pick one...eat one.. pick one... eat one... and we would all go back with pink fingers, lips and teeth and a very full belly! What fabulous memories... I hope my kids remember those days too...
