"Antique Breeze" 6"x6", oil, $120. Available at River Oaks Gallery, Abilene Tx
I love old things, usually more than new. Old fans are prettier and quieter. This one reminds me of spending the night at my grandmother's house with my cousins when we were really little. We'd all sleep in the same bed, facing the same direction, scratching each other's backs. Then, everyone would turn over and repeat. I think Mamaw was always in the middle so that her back got scratched from both directions. She deserved it. Window open, fan blowing, sweet memories....
"New Mexico Apple" oil, 6"x6" $120. sold
My daughter and her fiance' brought a sack of apples back from his hometown in New Mexico this fall. I nabbed this one because of the still-attached leaves and it waited patiently in my refrigerator until I had time to paint it. Too pretty to eat.
