Delicious! We often stay at La Nesquière, near Carpentras. Good market there.

Thanks for cheering me up on this cold April day here in Massachusetts with the beautiful painting.


I just finished making rhubarb and fresh ginger jam, and, as a long-time jelly and jam maker, know all about running out of jars! My favorite Christmas present was from my sister, who sent 2 dozen jars, lids, and caps.

that said, i love the fresh lusciousness of your strawberry depiction, and enjoy your frolicsome composition.


I have missed a few of your posts and beautiful work . I send you well wishes for a speedy recovery . May you and your family stay safe .
With love,

Sweet painting ... your little still-life paintings are lovely. Sadly our local market is closed here ... French strawberries are the very best! I became very bored with strawberries in Italy unless they came out of the garden

A lovely picture - it reminds me of a few years ago when we came to our family house in Beaumont du Ventoux at Easter and found the first Carpentras strawberries at the market. Such a good flavour and so wonderful at that time of year. Keep up the good work!

Best wishes, Jo
