    Gorgeous Jenna! I hope you’re planning on framing some of your fruit and veggie watercolors to hang in your kitchen! I can’t decide which I like better. Hope you’re staying cool this weekend, it’s too hot to boat here. 🙂

    Beautiful strawberries! You have such an eye. I’m lost from the start, but you always bring things into perfect view after adding the finishing details. I think it’s a brain thing, and my brain doesn’t work that way. If I had the time, surely my brain could be trained. (Wouldn’t Painter Artist Mom love that!?) Your strawberry recipes look divine! 🙂
