Anyone Got Some Cream?

Wonderful Tessa (and yummy too!)

Great job with these strawberries, Tessa, and the glass container is very well-painted too...

Great strawberries and glass - lovely, Tessa - like the light on the strawberries.

A tight composition is fine..a little more space above would create greater depth...I think!

Splendid work Tessa. So well painted.
