Strawberries and Cream




Strawberries and Cream

6x8in  oil on canvas board  $125. SOLD

Nothing can be better than strawberries with fresh whipped cream.
...well... except maybe raspberries!
I am a whipped cream addict. I cannot be trusted to be around it.
My uncontrollable finger sneaks into the bowl and exits with a huge mound
of delicious cream going right into my mouth.
AND I admit to licking the beaters!!!!

  2. Your comments about whipped cream have completely distracted me. Painting,what painting? My mouth is watering!LOL
    The upper left quadrant is alive with the energy of the whole painting. The colors are marvelous. They are almost playing with us. The strong diagonal takes me right into the painting. yes.

  3. That look tasty, and there is just enough information/details to make it obvious that it is strawberries. Well done.

  6. While this painting is fabulous, my mind is now on raspberries and fresh whipped cream. That sounds so yummy to me (I'm not as much a fan of strawberries, but raspberries? Ooh yummy!)!
