Roses Atop Decorative Box 16×20 Oil Painting on Linen – by Winifred Whitfield

The drape behind the still life set up gave me interesting shadows and direction of light – strong elements I’d not envisioned. I love it when that happens.

WELCOME TO JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS – our new President and Vice-President! What a mess they inherit!
