Labor of LOVE (Stamp)

"Labor of LOVE (Stamp)"
16" x 12"
Watercolor on paper
It was indeed a Labor of LOVE (Stamp) to sit in my mother's studio painting her doll-sized wicker chair without using masking fluid.  The cut work linen, a full-blown pink rose... imitating art, and another parian vase posed on a scalloped shelf against her favorite shade of aqua.

I drew the wicker and painted it first.  I was convinced if it looked right the rest would follow. The light in her studio was ambient window light.  Any additional light would have been too hot. There was no air conditioning in her Florida home.

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Dailypaintworks auction.
