Strawberries are yummy! I needed to take a break from birdies for just a moment, so today I decided to paint some fruit. I'll be back to birds in no time, but I really enjoyed painting these strawberries too. In Hawaii, we have some really amazing farms. A lot of the restaurants here implement "farm-to-table" style cooking which simply means that they utilize the local ingredients found on island from our many Hawaiian growers. Some of the best strawberries are located on the Big Island in Waimea. Deep red in color and intense juicy flavor make these strawberries hard to beat. Fortunately for us, Hawaii feels like summertime all the time, so we can get these strawberries almost any day of the year. Nature's candy!
