December 12 - Snapshot
"Snapshot" From ancestors to my current love, it is all encompassed in this original oil, 5 x 7 inches. The photograph in sepia tone is from my grandmother's things. She was my father's mother and an amazing woman for her time. Raiased on a Missouri farm, she left home to visit her brother in Colorado, and that's where she met my grandfather. She received a Brownie camera in 1903 and never stopped photographing. I have hundreds of her photographs. And the color picture is from a recent Christmas, sitting next to my beloved husband, my greatest supporter and best friend. Finishing up the composition, this filbert brush is my favorite tool. Available on ebay HERE.
