"Painting History"

Oil on Mat board

To purchase, email me with the title in the subject line.

I mentioned several days ago that my great-grandmother painted china. I now have her chest where she kept all her paints. It is a metal box with several plastic drawers in it. The drawers are meticulously organized with labels on the outside of each where she has noted what colors are in each drawer. They are powder pigments in little glass tubes, like the ones above. I know that this chest and its contents will be the subject of many paintings to come.
