About The Painting
I liked what the scarf brought to yesterday’s painting, so today I thought I would use it again. I had a beautiful batch of fresh strawberries in the kitchen and couldn’t resist working with that lush red color. I was tempted to call this strawberry landscape because of the mountain-like form of the scarf. It makes an interesting backdrop for the strawberries, and as in yesterday’s painting, forms an intermediary plane between the foreground and the wall. Because the scarf disappears beyond the boundaries of the canvas, it creates an unusual shape and adds variety to the composition.
