Mom's Front Porch

This oil painting is on a 3 ft. X 3 ft. canvas that my Mom had given me.  Some time ago she had started a painting on it, however, she wasn't going to be finishing it & told me to go ahead & paint over it. I chose to work from what she had started... to build it from there.  It is special that we share this piece together... is entitled, "Mom's Front Porch".  This photo shows the painting sitting on my work easel.

This painting draws out much sentiment...there is something about a front porch...I have always liked them.  It stirs many memories, nostalgia and thoughts of people taking time for each other.

There are probably many stories yet to share, conversations waiting to happen, iced tea or lemonade to be sipped...pull up a chair and relax a spell.
