Oil on Mat board

This is a painting within a painting. My great-grandmother used to paint china. She was a daily painter long before I was. Everyday she used to paint pieces, and now there are literally hundreds of pieces of china that she painted. This is a dish that I keep on my dresser, usually with my rings and my Bobbie pins and things like that on it. As I was painting this, I thought about what it was like for her to paint these same forms. It is interesting how a simple painting can connect lives so many years apart.
