Kathy, thank you. The detail is strawberries is always something to think about. Do I go w/ every little white seed, or do I just put down a few strokes.

Thank you Deborah. I'm always working on those edges.

Debbi, thank you. Strawberries have lush colors and a "lushous" taste!

Je suis malheureusement allergique aux fraises, mais pas aux vôtres qui sont remplies de lumières et de nuances de couleurs qui enchantent mon regard... et là, je ne crains rien!!!
Bisous

Merci Martine. Allergiques aux fraises. Mon dieux!

Thank you Nancy. I love painting on white. It allows me to push the shadow values.

Sherry, thank you. That would make a great painting title.

Thank you so much Fay. The background to me is just as important as the main object. It is another shape of values.

Marie, Thanks and actually, yes!
