assembled objects ....SOLD

assembled objects
10" x 8" oil on canvas

I have this wonderful old antique mantel in my dining room.  Layers of peeling paint over cracked and bleached wood.  One of my favorite  finds years ago at a flea market.  It has a very shallow ledge but I love to assemble different "found" objects on it.  

As summer gives way to fall, my dining room gets the most brilliant morning light and I love to sit there and have my coffee.  As I was sitting and sipping and looking at my mantle the other day, I thought .... "what a great painting!"   I tried to keep my brushwork very loose and my edges soft.  I love the subtle organic colors and worn patina in this painting. Very soothing, I think, don't you?

Love the vibrancy of the colors in this...at the same time it is soothing. Nice collection of "things".
