Ladies at Supper

My Ladies at Supper painting is wrapping up. I am pleased with the limited palette and the row of pretty maids. I hope I have been able to capture some of the charm of the original photograph. I have never been a big tracer of genealogy, but I can look into nearly any old photograph and see some of my ancestry. I think there are continuous threads of custom that make up our common cloth, and that's what I hope to find in these paintings of my favorite vintage snapshots. You can see more pictures of the finished work and get a closer look at Ladies at Supper at My Good Babushka.
