Fresh Fruit

Tis the season . . . for fresh fruits to taste even fresher! My favorites are blueberries, and adding just-picked blueberries to my morning yogurt is a delight!

This was painted following a tutorial by Vivian Cooper from Art with Viv, who has the most fabulous tutorials on her website. My husband and I moved to a new home in January but still have no artwork hung, so I’m working diligently on a series for the kitchen. This is the first one of a trio.

Hope you are enjoying some warmer temps and sunshine in your area. Once we get through the imminent cicada invasion, I’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors a little easier. Thanks for stopping by, and take care!
