Cherries... with a Picnic Table by 

Summer is rapidly approaching and the old picnic table that has been so long in the family is unclothed, showing the scars of age…peeling layers of paint…we trace the first colours that fathers father painted 60 years ago…remember that? then father painted the table many years later…it was blue or maybe green…then Uncle George…the table came to us then…I was 1950, the year we married…we wanted to strip the paint, but didn’t have time, so we painted it white…now Lindsay our great granddaughter has the table…she got it on her wedding day ten years ago…she plans to paint it again “Family History” Fictional extract…JZ..

Still Life with Black Cherries and Old Lace

Ripe Cherries

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    the exact thing I do ……repaint the outdoor furniture that desperately needs it………
    excellent version of this old picnic table……….

  • I have Muskoka chairs in my backgarden that are 29 years old, summer and winter alike…I have only had to paint them twice…but there is cedar underneath…this old imaginary table (right out of my head to the canvas), is much older and has come down through generations…hence the peeling paint…thanks so much KJ…

    This is so delicious! I love the colors and the textures!

  • What a lovely word to describe it!! thank you so much Helen…
    I notice that RB’s new way of displaying the art work on the page, gives it a slightly blurred edge and it’s also a bit curvy with a shadow…I wonder if everyone likes that…

    Memories that pull us to shadows
    that we have never seen,
    breaking with the patterns
    of eternal seams,
    ripped apart at daybreak,
    openings in the dawn,
    cracks of light
    cascading down waterfalls beyond

    I’m not sure I like the new display images yet. I’m going to reserve judgment and see if it grows on me.

  • So far I am fine with it, but I just posted a new painting, not yet published and it gives it a slightly different dimension…I think it’s o.k.
