Oh boy!...is all I can say. Can you imagine how long it
took to paint this? I have been working on it off and on
for weeks. I must have covered the entire canvas 6 -8 times
working all of the details and layers of glazes. I so wish that
photos on the net would do this justice but they don't.
Click on the photos and you will see a larger view.

There are 35 or maybe it's 36 elements in this painting.
I lost count. These are some of my favorite antiques. When
we were in the art and antique restoration business, we restored
many of these antiques. I used many of the photos I had from
the antiques we restored as reference for this piece.  It
is not likely that you would find a Renoir or a da Vinci in
an antique shop but you may find a print. I just thought
they looked great with all the other elements and are two
of my favorites from those artists. My favorite element is
the little yellow bottle on the front table. It is my personal
bottle from my collection. The label reads " Dreams" and
I always leave the top off.


I love antique shops and when I visit them I always
wonder where these treasures traveled from. If they
could only talk! Enjoy!
