A Favorite Painting
(Click to Enlarge Photo)
I love history! It is something that just really excites me. When I met my husband's Grandma Charlotte I fell in love with the history in her home. This was one of the paintings on her wall. It is of the City of York, Pa long before it became the modern, troubled city that it is today.
I particularly love the angles this artist, F. Marion Dyer used with the people and even the horse. The painting is dated 1935 and is hung with love in our family room with lighting focused on it.
My sister-in-law, Bev, the art curator, seemed to enjoy this painting too, the first time she saw it. It is fun to share our little treasures.
The colors were perfect for our family room as we remodeled and put in tans, burgundy and greens. Warren's parents had this painting remounted and cleaned after Grandma Charlotte moved into an assisted living facility. I so appreciate this gift.
Grandma Charlotte is now in Heaven but I think of her each time I enjoy this painting.
Do you take the time to enjoy artwork in your home? What are your favorites?
