The Sweet Life of Stawberries
Here it is my 300th post. I'm really excited about this painting. I'm taking a second class with Jennifer Balkan, and this is a still life that we set up in last week's class. It was inspired by a conversation I had with my painter friend Kirsten Brooks, where she mentioned that the secret to great art seems to be: "Paint Big." So here it is, my super big strawberry, on a bib that's full of strawberry illustrations. Art imitating life and art imitating art imitating life. Maybe it needs to be bigger still.
