Berry Challenging

Saundra Lane Galloway's summer painting challenge is up and running! Check out her blog to see some of the amazing entries so far, and a whole selection of images you can paint and submit for a chance to win a very cool prize.

Berries and Creme is my first attempt at painting strawberries, though I confess I have eaten my share. We grew strawberries on my parents' organic farm in East Texas when I was little. These plants love sandy soil and hay tucked around their roots. I remember standing in the furrows eating fresh, sweet berries, while the sand smushed up between my bare toes.

Thank you Saundra for such a great challenge. What fun!
