Mums on the Door Step,still life,oil on canvas,8x8,price$200

I found these mums by my door last night. Thank you to the plant giver. I was asked if my art work has changed since my husbands death two month ago. I said I couldn't tell yet. Today I did have 60s music playing instead of classical. So that was a change. The music made me think of Janet, Anita and I driving up Broad Street, Philly, in Anita's convertible, top down in mid winter, singing to the music.
