Still Life with Strawberries

I'm back from my holiday journeys to see friends and family. It was a wonderful time, but I glad to be home and painting today. It's raining, so I cannot take a photo and post. The above painting is in my house.

I saw the Chinese terra cotta soldiers at the High Museum in Atlanta. If you live anywhere near I recommend you visit it. These were made around 200 BC, and clay methods are still very much the same. It is one of the most remarkable shows I've seen. I have always had a fascination with China and now know that I will probably never go there. We are, indeed, fortunate that it is now in the US.
