Strawberries in a White Tin Cup

Strawberries in a White Tin Cup
8x8 Oil on Canvas
Cheri Wollenberg
Spring Break and vacation time was the venue for last week for my husband and I.  Sounds good, but this always means work for us!  We have an old ranch style country home in Oklahoma that we have been remodeling.  I took along my oil paints hoping that I will be able to paint sore muscles and all (laugh).   One morning I arranged this still life on a shelf I have in the mud room.  The sun was bursting through the windows creating an extreme high-key composition.  It was beautiful!  I decided to use contrasts in temperature leaving the strawberries to create contrast for the darkest values.
