Portrait of a Table

This the table where we just ate our Thanksgiving dinner...but I painted this the week of the hurricane, my husband was out of town and I set up my easel not to move it for days nor to move the fruit...I don't know what exactly inspired me , but looking at this table always inspires me and I had never painted it from this angle before...I wanted to include the chandelier with the Venetian glass and the dry grasses from our is larger than usual...36x48" oil on canvas

The August Garden at Dusk

This is the last study I painted in August of my wonderful garden...It took me a long time as there was a lot of information to process and it was a large canvas...actually I am still working on it...but winter is coming and before the snow flies I thought I should share it with you...36x48"
