It is strawberry season here in the Okanagan and the luscious ambrosia are even plentiful in my neglected garden! The bowl in this still life is a beautiful handmade, footed strawberry bowl complete with drain holes and a saucer to match. The berries disappeared the moment I finished the painting ... slurp!

I painted the above scene on location (not far from my home) a couple years ago and then stashed the study on my shelf with a stack of others. The study jumped out at me a few weeks ago so I painted it again in the studio. This is an excellent process as you tend to recall everything from that days painting experience; the vivid colours, the clear crisp air, the breeze blowing the leaves and the various painting challenges both resolved and unresolved. Something special is captured when painting "en plein air" and it generally carries over to the studio piece.
"Autumn" will be available at Gallery Odin's Summer Show Starting June 26
