Dining Room, Evening ~ oil on canvas ~ artist, Karen Lawrence ~ my private collection
This is a painting that Atlanta based artist Karen Lawrence painted after spending an evening in my home. We hosted an opening at City Art Gallery for her earlier that evening and then gathered in my home for dinner afterwards. She photographed throughout the house and developed several canvases from that experience. Both of my daughters received one of Karen’s pieces for Christmas that year to remind them of the home in which they journeyed through the first couple of decades of their lives, and where they still return “home” for special family celebrations. Below are those two jewels!
