All of my paintings have a special place in my heart. However, every once in a while there is a painting that brings a bit of nostalgia with it. This 48″x36″, oil painting in progress is one of them. Lately, I have been thinking a lot about my late grandmother. I have a fond memories of visiting her house and sitting with her in her kitchen drinking tea. Reflecting back on those memories brings me a sense of comfort.
I tried to capture that same peaceful comfort in this painting.
