Cambridge Favourite



Cambridge Favourite
12" x 12" oil on panel

Available from Etsy  $250 -  shipping included in North America

Living in a short season climate, growing fruit and vegetables can be a challenge.  But strawberries always come up trumps and there are usually some appearing in the garden each summer.  Their flavour is so intense when freshly picked and sun warmed.

This variety, Cambridge Favourite, is a classic and good for northern climates, always cropping reliably.  This was gathered early one morning, beating the birds to the harvest, then sliced to reveal the inner workings before painting.  The aroma of fresh strawberries made it difficult to paint instead of eat, but I confess, I had a few on the side to eat for inspiration.

I've had an email to say that there may be an issue with adding comments for this blog post - perhaps others? It was a problem with the verification process.

I can't find an issue, but if you have problems commenting, let me know via email and I'll work on resolving it.

Many thanks.

Hi Jeanette,
Received your latest email this morning and figured I'd give it another try.
Great portrait of a beautiful strawberry.
Sincerely,
Gary.

really like the textures on this and the simple composition of the strawberry and nothing else is very effective
