Dining Room Art


Nancy Gail Ring, oil on paper, copyright 2010

This is called “Holiness Passes By the Everyday World” and is another large study in the series I have been painting of my dining room. it’s about six feet high and four wide and the title comes from the text of Norman Bryson’s fascinating book Looking at the Overlooked: Four Essays on Still Life Painting. Enjoy the painting. Check out the book. Take the book to the beach with you like I did yesterday. Glorious day. Blackberries and chocolate in the cooler, and the boys rescuing big crabs by throwing them back into the waves . . .

So glad you’re back to your blog. I’ve missed you. The painting is another example of your wonderful talent. Sounds like a perfect day at the beach with the boys.

Thanks for your kind comments, Linda. I’ve missed being here on jellypress too, (and having time to cook and bake and read and comment, especially on your fabulous blog) but I have an important exhibition of my work coming up and have been mostly in my studio. As for the beach, it was great to get my son and his friend off the video games and into the fresh air. Enjoy the sunshine if you have it too where you are. Hard to stay inside painting when the world is in such a state of spring blooming!

That is such a wonderful and evocative painting Nancy - it looks like you are having a good semester! I’m looking forward to seeing your work in person this summer.
