Strawberries in pewter basket is part of my small classical still life series, focusing on capturing objects on low key dark background like in those classical paintings by the old master.
Strawberry is a symbol of Venus the goddess of love for its heart shape and red colour. It also symbolises perfection and righteousness. A lovely small painting to add to any room/space to bring you joy with a sense of tranquility.
