Pearls in An Orange Silk Purse - Painting

Pearls in an Orange Silk Purse
Oil on Masonite

Things are just things except when they carry the memory of a special person. When I went to see "The Girl with A Pearl Earring" this week I wore a single pearl my mother gave me the morning I graduated from 8th grade. It was like carrying her with me to the exhibit that had she been here, we would have shared. These earrings in their bright orange silk purse come from a dear friend and they will always remind me of her. A gift that keeps on giving.

  1. I love how you chose to make the background a pearl white. A very lovely and beautiful painting.
