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!
