I am much happier with this piece – in a sense, it is a do over of the strawberry picker with an empty flat. The first piece, “Field Flat” was finished the day before yesterday – and I was happy with it – even though I knew it wasn’t quite the feeling I had set out to achieve.

The world in this piece is computer fun. I overlapped gradients – did a little copying and pasting – some stretching and flipping, created new paints out of the painting itself, created new textures, blended parts – and just had some good fun with the medium. Yehhh!

The figure is larger and alone, like I had originally wanted – the posture a little different – couldn’t remember the exact way he held the flat – but mainly I just wanted another crack at it – I thought I could portray what I was looking for better.
