Just finishing up a project for a local fundraising auction this week!  This is just bottled acrylics done on a dollar store cutting board.  I've got a bit of tweaking to do with some shading but it's almost done and ready for a couple coats of sealer  Grin  
I got distracted with my bag challenge and cinnamon bun sewing but back on track today  Cheesy Cheesy  I've got one other project in the works that's almost finished also and hopefully will be done by Thursday  Cheesy Cheesy

Thanks for all your kind words, really means a lot to me!  This was really fun to paint and watch it start to "pop" off of the surface  Cheesy
 I can only take credit for the painting, not the original design which was by Marsha Weiser, back in '01.  I have one other of her drawings of some veggies and I want to try them on another cutting board (eventually)  Cheesy

You paint very nicely! I admire you talent! I must admit that at first glance (laughing at myself now) I did not realise it was a painting. I half-expected you to tell us you took some (very nice) photos of some sliced strawberries.... in an attempt to welcome summer sooner  Grin.  At a second glance (of only the pic) I was wondering if maybe you were looking for a way to spruce up that cutting board with your painting skills. Upon closer inspection I see what you've done at I think it's lovely!

 I would cut up and throw strawberries all over my house if I thought it would make the snow outside melt faster  Cheesy Cheesy

Thanks very much for your comments  Grin
