‘Rustic Charm’

Upon spotting a photo of this arrangement on the front of a ‘fine arts’ book, I knew it was something I would paint.  The old vases and jug lead me to wonder about their origin.  How old are they?  Where were they found or bought?  Were they passed down through generations? 

Antiques fascinate me.  I imagine that they were once shiny when new, but I so prefer their current rustic charm.



About Lisa's Palette

"My paintings are often admired for their realistic qualities through the use of light, shadow and colour. Capturing the beauty within the rustic landscapes of my entitled series, 'Farms of Simcoe County,' has become my passion. Keeping my camera close at hand allows me to capture the images as I come across them, while I use my artistic gifts to seek out particular points of interests in these images. Painting on location brings a connection to the subject, through not only sight, but sound and smell as well. My goal is to produce paintings that give the viewer a sense of calmness and relaxation.”
