The two strawberries in the middle look like they have their heads together in conference. I'm leaving Oklahoma today and heading back to Louisville KY. I painted this one in advance because I knew there would not be time to paint one today.

Claudia Hammer a Painting a day
I started this series of small (6” x 6”, 6” x 8”, 5” x 7”) paintings in May 2009 as a daily practice and discipline in order to liberate my work by painting from life in a restricted amount of time. In carefully considering placement, shape and color, I strive to find the essence and beauty of common objects in a fast-paced world that is dominated by electronic gadgets and digital images. It is my hope that people will stop, look and see the dignity and soul of things that are often taken for granted.
Composition and lighting are key elements in the creative design process, allowing me to create a lively and often humorous narrative.
