not the best strawberry season with so much rain, but always good to get a few fresh strawberries after the bunnies polish them off the vines

not too much time in the studio today, worked up a quick collage for my sketchbook..I print up a small photo of one of my tree painting and extend it out with some colors....a printer in the studio can be a very creative tool...we have come a long way from good old fashion paints
