When coming up with a title for this post I was at a loss. So in all honesty - the whole Landscape Series 12 was just something that I made up. The twelve comes from the approximate number of paintings I have picked up this past year at various yard sales, thrift stores, and purchased from KSL. It sounded official and maybe caught your attention? This picture was hanging above the fabulous McCleary buffet and I was a bit surprised no reader asked me about it. Ha! Kidding! I know not everyone shares my love for these old paintings. My hubby being one and my mom another. But hey - we are all entitled to our own opinions and taste. I don't know what my attraction is but we all have busy lives with families, i phones, laptops, church callings, volunteer work, and day to day activities. These paintings display a setting of peace, quietness, long days, and warmth which we all long for as we get through the day. Another thing I like about these old things are the frames. Typically they are quite detailed and already have a natural worn look. I particularly like this one with the levels of detail in the golden colors yet dulled with a bit of old grey peaking through.
