Shelter - SOLD


As in the strawberry. The cracked rim of the coconut, with the little berry nestled inside, is my favourite part of this painting. After people's comments yesterday I can't wait to try baking with fresh coconut. I think macaroons are in order : )

Love it! You are so clever to come up with a totally different fruit to use. And it looks so good next to the white background

Really nice Kim. I love the title. Love both strawberries. The one outside the coconut almost has a 3-D quality to it. Very cool!

The textures on the coconut are fabulous, Kim! I can almost smell and taste it.

I can almost taste the "tart" taste of the white end of that one strawberry! Love the title too!

Great composition and color here Kim! Very eye catching!

Hi Kim
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for you comments. I think we both must spend a "little" time at Timmys;) I had a look through your work and really enjoyed the loose brush strokes and vibrant colors. I agree with you: practice, practice, practice. Fun and frustration all at the same time!

This painting makes my mouth water, I see it and I think of Costa Rica, and pina coladas! But I must say that is a mighty-fine looking coconut. I especially love the edges.

Love your coconuts! I don't think I've ever seen one in a Still Life and I'm wondering "why not?" because it is very pretty. I can really see the depth of the bowl in this one and putting the strawberry in the other one was such a witty decision!

I like that the little strawberry hiding inside the coconut seems to have character. It looks like a game of hide and seek.
