Denise Maxwell Painter – Strawberries in a Paper Bag 11″x14″ oil on wood panel. This piece I completed last evening at the farmers market. Setup took me a little while to figure out and it was looking like rain so I moved up on the stage for some shelter as I didn’t want to get caught half way through and loose my view. Most often my view point is close to eye level because I stand down off the edge of the stage and close to the stream of people who have come to the market.
