Dining Room Art


Nancy Gail Ring, “Dining Room,” oil on paper, 2010

I’ve been painting studies on paper of my dining room in preparation for a new series I will start soon on canvas. Here are two done at night.

I’ve lived in this house for seven and a half years and there’s been a lot of life lived and a lot of meals served in this room. So many families have lived here; it’s an old house, built in 1926.

The room remains virtually the same while families pass through it, eat here, change and grow here, arrive and depart.


There is a sense of place that is very much a part of me now.

I just love your work Nancy. The paintings are so evocative of a moment frozen in time. Love the way you captured the light in that first one, and highlighted the young girl in the second. I see that wire basket made it into one of the paintings too. If these are just studies, I’ll bet the real thing will be sensational. brava
