I painted this from a photo that was taken when my Grandma was near sixty. I loved going to see her in this little farm house my Gran-dad built for them to live in. I didn't realize how sad it looked .... to me it was an awesome home because my Grandma was there. I remember she used "plastic" curtains in the summer. They were very thin and covered with little flowers. I've yet to talk to anyone who remembers plastic curtains. She was right about her biscuits never tasting as good after her kids replaced her wood burning kitchen stove with a more safe electric oven. This is on an 11' x 14" canvas.
