Strawberries in a Silver Bowl

This is the fifteenth and final still life for my Amarillo show.  My sister, Melinda gave me some beautiful strawberries and I placed them in a sterling silver, Paul Revere bowl I was awarded years ago as a 4-H prize.  I liked the challenges of the reflections, the silver surface and all the textures and colors of the strawberries.  I did not like the elbow grease it took to polish up the bowl after it had been sitting for years in the back of my china cabinet.

I am pretty proud of the finished results of this piece and am excited to see it in a frame and displayed at the OHMS cafe and bar.  I've completed four pieces this week!

This pastel piece is 10.25" x 14" on Canson Mi-Teintes Paper
