It's been A Long Day, 18x24 oil SOLD

It's been A Long Day, 18x24 oil

I'm always looking around for things to paint.  Stopping in shops to perhaps find a piece that I can include in a painting.  Sometimes I'm lucky, but more often than not there is nothing that inspires me or the cost doesn't merit the purchase.  Who would have thought I should find something in my own house; there's an idea!  Over the years my family has acquired a few items from various relatives, (mainly my husband's parents).  You get so used to these things being around that you actually stop seeing them.  The piece that I used in this painting has been in my studio for the past few years, usually with a small plant or two on top.
