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!
