Peonies, Rose and Tatted Lace
As I was drawing this piece, I thought of the name Fine Things because the items in this still life are parts of my favorite things. The tatted lace was made for me by a dear friend and I have always cherished this, almost lost, craft. The peonies were grown by me and are one of my favorite flowers, as are roses. The pitcher reminds me of items that I remember as a child. My intent was to capture an image that gives a feeling of wanting to climb into the painting and look around and see what life was like at that (1940's?) time.
