CACTUS AND LACE


CACTUS AND LACE
Nancy Herman
8" x 6"
oil on canvas board

Here is the final version of Cactus and Lace.  I was able to get rid of most of the charcoal lines and even things out a bit.  I got this lace while visiting Amsterdam.  I made the curtains and have been enjoying them for at least 20 years.  I think part of that enjoyment is remembering that I had the guts to buy all the lace and the tenacity to make the curtains.  Now I would prefer staying home and taking a walk in the neighborhood, or painting the way the light comes through this Amsterdam lace.
