So... I tried my hardest to stay completely realistic, showing my technical skill in rendering true-to-life, just-like-a-photo, perfect strawberries on a gently rolling tablecloth.
But... I got bored. I had to do something different, something fun, something to make the viewer pause and take a second look, something to THINK about.
That's just what I do! No sense in fighting it, I guess!
This illustration is for a cookbook page, with the Northern Ohio Illustrators. All of the recipes pertain to the area. I selected my mother's strawberry pie recipe to illustrate.
The book comes out in the fall, and each artist will have a two-page spread, with their photo, bio, recipe and illustration. I'm excited to see it!
