Heritage

"Heritage"
6 X 6
Oil on Hardboard
SOLD!

 My husband and I come from a long line of German farmers, although we do not farm and only one of Dale's siblings still farms.  But I do continue the country lifestyle and the heritage of preserving fruits, vegetables and meat.  Canning was taught to me by my mother and mother-in-law.  Now I am passing that knowledge on the the next generation.



Here is how it might look framed

  2. Beautiful painting, composition, colors! What a great idea to paint what we are pleased to do. Right now, I make jams and canned peaches, I'll think about it ...

  4. I've never canned though I did once make jelly from a crabapple tree we had in our yard. I was pleased as punch when all my jars sealed! LOL I too love the country lifestyle. This piece is just plain homey and wonderful, Karla!
