I inherited this painting from my mother in law a few years ago when she closed her antique booth. I fell in love with the frame, the painting...not so much. The painting was so old that it had just about grown into the frame. They had become one. So taking it out of the frame meant risking the already delicate integrity of the old frame. I tried touching up the painting...
But it still looked so scraggly and off. I may have changed the colors but I only made the "tablecloth" look worse!
So tonight, after having spent the whole day on another new big painting, I grabbed it and pretty much started fresh (it's such a pain to set up the oil paints so I look for any excuse to keep those brushes wet). This thing has so many layers of paint now!!
So here it is! I can live with it now!
Don't ask me what kind of flowers they are. A figment of my imagination I guess. What started as hydrangea morphed into lilac...or wisteria or something. That's the great thing about impressionism- you can be a little more obscure! Haha
Only one problem...why in the heck did I use purples? I have zero purple in my house.
