Strawberry Harvest - NFS

Driving around the Ventura/Oxnard area you will see strawberry fields on both sides of the road.  It's a very agricultural area and to my pleasure affords me many booths of fresh produce to purchase on the way home.  There's nothing like getting it right off the farm so to speak.  This painting isn't for sale, not just because it strikes a sentimental cord and reminds me of a fantastic weekend with my honey, but I also love the colors, workers, sky, background, foreground.  It all fell into place and I love when that happens.  Hoping you enjoy it as well!


  1. As I've perused your website, I returned to this painting time and again, I love the feeling, perspective and colors.

  2. Not only am I enjoying your painting, Barbara, I am loving it!! I totally understand why you want to keep it. It is just lovely!

  3. This is so beautiful! It reminds me of a beautiful Van Gogh. Your painting makes me feel like I'm there in the field picking berries!
