"The Dining Room"

It's the middle of Winter, and all is dreary outside. Usually I'm not one to paint straight lines, it's just not my personality. So it was a bit of a challenge for me to use a piece of furniture for a subject in a painting. But the shimmering play of light on the mirror, and all the lovely little dishes more than made up for any difficulty I might have had with the buffet. The Art Nouveau style was a bit more forgiving than others might have been. But I must confess, I love the plate on the wall the most.
