Strawberries - Loosely Speaking
Painting loosely is a 'challenge' for me -- the need for 'detail' is ever strong (the botanist maybe???), and so it took a couple of attempts to apply paint fast and wet and then leave it alone after it was done ... the painting is loose (for me), but not as 'abstract' as I had seen in my head ...! LOL I suppose each of us has our own 'style' that comes thru no matter what other style we admire, love or try ... and we spent a long time learning that! LOL
Today, we'll do the typical outdoor grilling as our office 'opening of Summer," and I'll continue working with strawberries.
I made some wonderful strawberry tea bread for our special 'tea' at the Arboretum next week, dried several trays, and have turned a bit 'red' from eating so many.
I think I may have a date with my jam making equipment ....
