STRAWBERRY DONALD is a 7x5 work on paper. It appropriates an image of strawberries from Biggle's Berry Book (1911) and a portion of a vintage Donald Duck Strawberry Ice Cream container. The quotation is from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The piece is colored with prisma color markers and ink pen. Strawberries have been a symbol of interest to me for years. (Strawberry jam all over the cat, a lyric in The Fantastics, started it.) In this Donald Duckian political era, I thought Goethe's simple statement was relevant for today. We old farts are botching things up. We're in a jam. It's time for the un-set-in-their-ways, innocence of kids to take over and bring fresh ideas into our stale gasping world. Change. Change would be the berries, to paraphrase a popular 1920's catch phrase: It's the berries, stupid. Biggle Berry Book is juicy with small facts about fruit. It was originally issued in 1894 and was a popular introduction to growing strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, dewberries, currants, gooseberries, grapes and other small fruits from bud to box.
