Art in my kitchen

Now you know which paintings I have in my bedroom, let’s move on to the kitchen!
With moisture and fumes it might not be an ideal place for art, but the pieces hanging a good distance away from the stove and oven.

The first is a delicious 8×6 painting by Viv Lieskovsky: Medicine Bottles. She had it in one of the recent Leir House shows, where I bought it.

Then there is my own practice piece for the first RipOff challenge: Starry Night by Van Gogh in encaustic.

Next up is a wonderful water colour by Jill Leir-Salter, the grand-dame of painting wide skies and Okanagan landscapes. She had it in an exhibit in Naramata and I could not resist!

The last one in the kitchen is again an Okanagan scene, this time by Lynne Marand, active member of the South Okanagan Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists. This is the second piece we acquired from her; the other one, Serendipity, hangs in the hallway.
