Simple Gifts, 16x20, oil on linen

"Simple Gifts"- 16x 20, oil on linen

Simple gifts seemed an appropriate name for this painting, which I thankfully finally finished today! The fruit basket, eggs, wine and orchids all seemed to indicate the sense of bounty and overall prosperity that we as a nation sometimes take for granted in these United States. I do hope the painting imparts a sense of thankfulness to viewers as well. We are truly fortunate to have what we have, despite rising gas prices and a falling dollar.

May everyone have a thankful, joyful and peaceful Thanksgiving!
