Show & Tell Friday - Still Life

Happy Friday! This week's post is a short & sweet one. We have guests coming this weekend so I'm getting ready for their arrival. This is a painting that my Mother painted about a year before she became ill. She took beginning art classes and created some very lovely oil paintings. I recently had this one re-framed and it now hangs proudly in our family room.

Visit Kelli's Kelli's Place for more wonderful SNT posts! I have really enjoyed contributing and reading other's, its a lot of fun!

That is sooooo good. As I love to paint myself, I think she captured the lighting perfectly.

Also...I wanted to say that I love your caption about family/fudge on your header. That's cute.

My Show n Tell is something I made for Halloween, if you'd like to stop over and critique it I'd be happy.
