With strawberries planted in neat rows and the ground cushioned with a bedding of fresh straw, a wood mouse has found itself a delightful surprise, strawberries. Draping down with the weight of plump juice berries they rest on the straw. Ripening in the midday sun their aroma fills the air drawing the wood mouse to the heights of temptation. Well, who could resist?
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the mouse, flowers, leaves and strawberries were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft fur of the mouse to the delicate petals.
