While painting this, I remembered being very little and having my Mom buy us matching t-shirts. I begged to have the shirt, because it featured a cute mouse holding a strawberry. Isn't it amazing what objects will trigger our memories?
Every year during strawberry season, our family goes to a "you pick" farm. The scent of strawberries and rich soil washes the air and there is a playground for families to enjoy after picking. I hope that my daughter will look at a strawberry after she is grown, and remember our times there together.
Does the strawberry trigger a special moment in time for you?
