Raspberries in Rice Bowl
8x8 Oil on Canvas
Last summer my husband and I were playing golf. We were at the 6th Tee and it is alongside an old farm fence at the golf course. I spotted these wonderful raspberries growing wild over and through the fence and I exclaimed to my husband that I had to have a few. He ducked his head (laugh) because he is a serious golfer. I think he was hoping that I was teasing. While no one was looking I slipped over, chopped some of them away, stickers and all....placed them in my golf bag and as soon as I got home I set them up in a still life. I have to admit....I had a wonderful time with my husband, but the excitement and anticipation of painting this little composition ranked very high on my "joy" list that day.
