Still Life with Acorns and Bean Pot - SOLD

"Acorns and Bean Pot"

5.75"x 7.75" Oil on linen panel.

Many things have kept me from painting lately but a recent trip to the North Georgia mountains was the one thing that was worth it. My husband and I stayed in a cabin in Blairsville, Ga. and had the most relaxing and rejuvenating time that we've had in many years. I didn't take my paints but my camera was very busy. I don't often paint landscapes but I have some wonderful photos from our explorations that begged to be painted. Fall was in the air, it being 10 degrees cooler than here in Atlanta. Oh I so want fall to be here in full force! I'm looking forward to the wonderful color we have here in Atlanta with our many trees.

The bean pot was a find while antique/ flea market shopping in the mountains. It is a Heinz 57 bean pot produced in the 70's to make individual servings of baked beans. It is so cute and has the most wonderful deep reddish brown glaze. Such little things bring joy.
