Cozy Kitchen

Click Here to Bid (6x6in.)

I took the picture for this in my friend Bren's house in Maine, last time I was there. I have very fond memories of this house and my friend in it. She sat in the nearest chair last spring and let me henna her whole head. This is when the henna was still basically mud. ->

Such a beautiful and warm room.
I remember.
We met at MFA Boston just after your visit to Brenda.
I hope we can connect again this year. It would be 7 years in a row, since Jacksonville!

Oh, Carol, your art makes tears well in me today. I've been to many art exhibitions in my friend Bren's home and enjoyed all of the chatting in that kitchen. As an aside, that kitchen is not only the kitchen of the fine artist Brenda Ferguson but years ago it was the home of the songwriter of the Garden Song by Dave Mallett, "Inch by inch, row by row, going to make this garden grow," that was played on Sesame Street so many times, recorded by the Muppets. He was at one of Bren's art exhibitions. And with Bren there in that kitchen the sunflowers grew and grew outside as well as in her paintings. Great painting, Carol, and so moving. –Art Maine (Bruce)

I love this interior, too. It feels so permanent for some reason, so believable, and a wonderful atmosphere.

This brings back memories of doing mendhi on my sister's head.
