Several new paintings

SOLD This was started and put aside and changed and changed and then put aside again and then repainted and finally I think I am done. Not totally happy but it will do and we shall see if the coffee drinkers out there like this. Who knows it may get gessoed over and reincarnate as something else down the line! I love the colors and the vase and the window. This one is 18"x24" with just a simple black slat frame.
2 more little 5"x7" gallery wrap paintings. These have been good sellers for me so I just keep painting them.

Thinking of red

Saw Broken Embraces with Penelope Cruz. A movie by Pedro Almodovar. So Much red.
ripe red tomatoes, red kitchen tiles, red sweaters, red skirts, red dresses, red shoes. Sad story.
Loved the beach house, they escaped to. I think I lived here once.

Plant city strawberries

Spring Break 2010....... No not on the sunny beaches of Ft. Lauderdale but touring central Florida with my daughter looking at prospective colleges!. A highlight was a stop in Plant City Florida, the strawberry capital of Florida. We missed the strawberry festival but found, thanks to the sweet man at the information office, Parkesdale Farms. Thinking just to buy a flat of strawberries we were surprised by this wonderful strawberry themed farm stand. The berries were wonderful., but what a surprise to see strawberry shortcake and strawberry milkshakes!

Had to try one of each.

Strawberry throne , complete with crowns so you could be a strawberry Queen!

Red every where. Drove back to the keys with the sweet smell of berrys in the back seat. Open year round, but only serving shortcake from January to mid April! So get them while you can!
