Harvest 1, 5x7 oil

When I was a little girl, I remember my Mom doing lots of canning. We had a special room in the basement called the "fruit room" where she stored her home canned foods. (My mean brother used to lock me in the fruit room and turn out the light...but we won't get in to that). I remember seeing Ball canning jars like this one in her canning supplies.

What I like most about this painting is the way the black and white checkerboard sets off the tomatoes and is slightly distorted in the glass. SOLD

Just wanted you to know, I find this painting BEAUTIFUL. I also remember my mother canning and I too paint tomatoes, canning jars, and chessboards on occasion. I do not see how much this painting costs, however, Please let me know.
