Three Strawberries Daily Painting


Three Strawberries – 4" x 6" – Oil on Canvas Panel

Hi ~ Today I was able to fit in a daily painting alongside other art and life activities. These strawberries were from a bunch picked up today while out grocery shopping, once home I typically cut up strawberries so they are easy to grab for lunches and ready to eat. These three were exceptionally picturesque, so I set the strawberries aside on a paper towel with the intention of painting them, in reviewing them on the paper towel, I decided to use it as the background, incorporating the quilted pattern for some added texture in the whiteness.
