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 ORIGINAL 15x23.5 oil painting, in beautiful custom framing, may be purchased from Lewis Art Gallery for $1200.00 (framing extra).

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.
