My First Art Purchase

 

This is "Garlic and Clove", an oil painting by Ohio artist Bert Beirne. She paints from life in the style of the old masters. I bought it in August from Gallery C on N. Blount St. in downtown Raleigh. It's only 4x5 so it fetched a price I could afford. I am chuffed, as the Brits would say!

 

Below is a photograph that I posted on SC in March as a tribute to Edward Weston. It must have been in the back of my mind as I made my purchase.

I love your photograph as much as the painting. I learned a new word today: 'chuffed'.
Larry Bliss: It is a fine word.
