Local Berries - Fruit Still Life with Strawberries

Local Berries
3x4 inches
acrylic on canvas

The first fruit of summer!

I love the local strawberries here in the northeast. The season is very short - but oh, so sweet!
This year we have tons of wild strawberries in our yard as well (one of the bonuses to not weeding my flowerbeds very well  ;-) The kids are enjoying hunting them and getting what they can before the birds get to them.

I wanted to do a quick little painting before I get started on a few more show entries. These little mini canvases are a lot of fun to work on - and they make a great grouping when a bunch are hung together, so I am going to try to get some more fruits and vegetables done before my late summer and fall shows begin. I am looking forward to visiting some of the local farmers markets for inspiration!
