Strawberry and Midnight Beauties, Summer Daily Painting

Strawberry and Midnight Beauties
oil on masonite
5 x 7 inches

I painted this on the night of the Strawberry Moon on the Summer Solstice. It is a sun and moon painting. I chose to pair the strawberry, representing the full moon, with grapes, because I was thinking about Galileo's famous quote: The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.
