Strawberry Faire

"Strawberry Faire" illustration

Strawberry season will be upon us soon.  The berries are just beginning on the plants, and lately I've had a bit of a strawberry-inspiration bug - drawing, painting and needle felting.  And, I've been seeing strawberry motifs wherever I go it seems... funny & delightful how that works!  Hand-in-hand these wee ones are off to the strawberry faire and I have to say that I would love to join them, wouldn't you?  Who knows what lays ahead... maybe chocolate strawberries on a stick or a strawberry breathing dragon?!  : )  Somehow it all seems a bit metaphorical, "going to the faire" and perhaps it is.  Leaving the mundane for awhile to experience a bit of strawberry bliss.  Thank goodness for imagination and creativity, and the wonderful, healing & highly un-mundane places they can take us to.

See you at the strawberry faire!
