Country Historical Art
Beauty from the Past
The glowing wood with damask cloth and china provides a cozy home where friends may share coffee or tea. The inspiration for this painting came from a historical home named Wildwood House in Nebraska City, the town where Arbor Day began. The Wildwood Historic Center has been listed on the National Registry of Historic Places as the Jasper A. Ware House since 1973. The Wares moved to Wildwood in 1869, the Civil War era.
The 15 x 23.5 inches oil painting, in beautiful custom framing, was sold by Lewis Art Gallery in 2018.

The broad shapes of the-first-layer-of-paint establish the art design. Some parts have strong color (like the wood cupboard), designed to glow through subsequent layers of transparent paint. Other parts express texture (the tablecloth). Later, when I glazed the tablecloth in transparent red, the texture enhanced the illusion of cloth.
