Feminine Still Life Painting


Still Life Painting of Porcelain on Farmhouse Windowsill

The deeper meaning of this cheery still life painting is not at first apparent. A wreath of dainty dried flowers lovingly hung in the window welcomes the warmth of the sun after the rain. A cold, dreary melancholy world outside is barely visible through drying rain droplets as the window pane warms with the sunshine like tears drying on a comforted cheek. The lace and porcelain displayed on the window sill symbolize the fragility of the human spirit. As the sun spills in onto the warm wood of this old farmhouse, it brings back all the happy carefree childhood memories that were made there.
