Chrysanthemum

***

Somebody in my household must have had a penchant flower-paintings: my third childhood painting instalment is a lovely rendition of golden chrysanthemums in a vase. This may not have been my parent’s style though, because I found some of the best flower paintings in the attic. This is one of them. The frame is the original one and had to be carefully restored. Curiously, the frame was made of gypsum and the restoration may not keep for more than ten years. I’m keeping an eye on it. . .

  1. That is gorgeous! Those colors are beautiful and so realistic! Where are you going to hang it? We have a large painting my hubby’s grandmother did and I’m pretty sure someone said the very heavy frame is mage of gypsum. But it is lovely.

    1. Isn’t it just!! I love it to bits. It hangs in the corridor — the best place for older pictures. That’s where I have a tiny gallery of old paintings and engravings. I believe the oldest engraving is from 1847.
      I’m sure that your hubby’s granny’s painting is beautiful.
