"Two Strawberries" 4 x 4 Oil on Gessobord Not Available

Quote for the day from Robert Henri in his book, The Art Spirit, published in 1923 -

"Artists are sometimes asked, "Why do you paint ugly and not beautiful things?" The questioner rarely hesitates in his judgement of what is beautiful and what is ugly. This with him is a foregone conclusion. Beauty he thinks is a settled fact. His conception also is that beauty rests in the subject, not in the expression."

As always your paintings look good enough to eat! I like how you brought some of the background into the cherry on the right.
