Oil Painting Progress: “Mamaw’s Oil Lamps” oil on linen

 

 

 

 

 

This wonderful still life set up is an oil lamp collection saved from my grandmothers garage attic.  We were helping my grandmother transition from her house several years ago to my mother’s house.  As boxes and old items were being thrown down from the attic by some helpers, one box survived with treasures inside.  I new I wanted to use some of the treasures in a still painting honoring my grandmother who will be 93 this year.

 

 

 

 

 

Since my studio is in my house, I paint in a small room with the best natural light.  When I placed the painting behind the set up so I could clean up the area, I was amazed at the double vision of the still life.

 

 

 

 

 

Here the painting is almost complete.  I still need to resolve the right side of the painting where you can view part of my window with the Canna peaking through.  These Cannas came from a muched loved previous house.  When we moved last year, I took some of the bulbs and planted these tower 6ft plus Cannas.  I view them almost everyday thanks to our Houston climate.  When the wind blows, the Cannas lightly tap on the glass window.
