This One's For Me
30" x 15" Oil on Hardboard
Years ago we found two triangular pedestels - probably fern stands - while on a trek through antique stores in Eastern Tennessee. Never got around to properly refinishing them so they have been in and out of the attic or tucked in a dark corner of one room or another. Now I'm finding they make good stands for still life arrangements. One has a marble (broken) top and the other one a smooth top of wood.
A blank wall in the dining room begged for a vertical piece so I painted this one using "faux" fruit to enhance that space. Framed and hanging, it didn't feel "finished" so back on the easel it went. I'm still not happy with the background but tonight it's back on the wall...at least for the time being.
