"Family Room"

9 x 12"

oil on masonite


Well.... duty called this week. Lots of work to do at my frame shop. July can be a busy month, I expect because it's too hot to do anything outside so folks work on their insides.

I finished this new painting last night - a young woman sketching the painting before her by Peter Paul Rubens, "The Holy Family with Saints Elizabeth and John the Baptist", which hangs in the Art Institute of Chicago. As a teenager, I spent endless hours in that museum, doing the very same thing.
