The leisurely Sundays encouraged amateur painters to celebrate life's pleasures with paint strokes on everything from canvas to cardboard...painting everything from floral still lifes, portraits and landscapes. Old landscape scenes provide a sense of comfort, romance and contrast to a room filled with pretty, pale furniture. This is a wonderful example of an oil on paper board. It's a dawn scene and with the dark pine trees, cabin or cottage in the woods and the dark blue mountains, this landscape has a mysterious or brooding quality to it.
Sweet Linda of Somewhere in Time talked about comfort foods on her last post. She posted a recipe for corn chowder that I just had to try. Today was so cold and rainy that the chowder was perfect for our Sunday nite supper. Thank you Linda for that super recipe. DH had two big bowlfuls of it. Try it! xo Lynn
