Marie's China Bowl

                                 6" x 12" Oil on Panel

        I never met my husband's grandmother, Marie, but the many colorful stories I've heard makes me sad  I didn't have that chance.  As a widow,  she   lived in south Florida  and grew a variety of fruit and vegetables assisted only by her loyal pet duck, Goldie.  We inherited her lovely China  and this is the first attempt at including a piece  in a still life painting.  Still fascinated by reflections,  the setup is on glass over  black foam core.   A companion piece is on the easel - a short break from painting faces and figures!


  1. This is beautiful and tells a lovely story. It is a good break from your great portraits!

    1. Thank you, Jo! Still life paintings are so beautiful to see but what a challenge to paint! So happy you like this one!

  2. Bonjour,

    Quelle superbe composition !
    Une très belle harmonie de couleurs...

    Gros bisous ♡

  3. Merci , Martine ! Donc heureux que vous avez visité et comme l'harmonie des couleurs dans cette petite nature morte ! Vos commentaires sont toujours appréciés !

  4. Absolutely beautiful Rosemary...this piece has such feeling. Can't wait to see the companion. You are so very talented friend. Have a wonderful week-end. Hugs

  5. This is a gorgeous still life, Rosemary!!! Your husband's grandmother would have loved this painting.
    especially having a piece of her china included !!

  6. Thank you, Hilda. I hope she would have liked the painting. Her China is beautiful and I hope to include more pieces in future still life paintings. Your comments are always appreciated!
