This table top still life was inspired by a painting on my wall.
It is actually a print, but one that imitates authenticity with textured brushstrokes on canvas. I found it in an antique shop years ago and put it into this hand painted frame. The frame was silver, but I painted it pale green, leaving some of the silver to show through, and added antique glazing to add instant 'age'.
It hangs between my 'Kitchen Queen' Hoover Cabinet and my Pantry Cupboard. (And above the pet food dishes- real life!)
I have always loved this painting for it's simple depiction of a bountiful harvest.
Sweet Hubby bought me the Dahlia's from this little flower cart on the side of the road.
Using the honor system, he just put some money in a jar.
This flower cart is very similar to a miniature musical flower cart he once bought me.
So what do you think?
Does art imitate life?
Or does life imitate art?
