The berries in our back yard finally ripened! I waited all summer for a chance to do this painting. This piece draws on my current inspiration, late 18th c and early 19th c still life. At some point I will do a larger piece, but first I wanted to try a this on a small scale. This was more like a three day painting than a daily painting, I wanted to develop it beyond a sketch.

6" x 8" oil on linen panel

Even before I read your description of this piece and it's inspirations of early 19th century still lifes, I was going to tell you that's what it reminded me of.

I think my favorite parts of it, aside from the berries of course, are that stem on the left and that area in the background in the upper right. That slight curve up there is unexpected and fascinating.
