Berries and Bowls

Acrylic on canvas, 6" x 6"

It seems like ages since I last painted. Few things kept me away for a while, primarily, helping my son prepare for his various Olympiad exams. Although I was free after that, somehow it seemed hard to start painting again. I had lost the rhythm, and it did take a lot of effort to pick up the brushes! Anyway, it feels great to be posting again. :-) Hopefully, I'll be more committed to painting this year.

This painting is done for the Rookie painter challenge. I definitely wanted to try the strawberries, since I never painted them before. I guess the fun part is putting those reflections.


  1. You're off to a brilliant start Anita!! love the shine on the strawberries and the ceramic bowls!!
    Happy New Year!

  2. Hello Anita. I know that feeling: every day it likes harder to pick up the brushes. But once you started again you can't stop :) Please go on with it. Your work is great! Like the berries and bowls. Very nice work!

  3. This is a really good painting. I checked the image that was provided and I like what you have done from it. Very nice!
