Still Life Auricula


Today my sister and I took our mother to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. What an absolutely enchanting place to spend an afternoon.  The design of the museum was taken from the Palazzo Barbaro in Venice  when the Gardners visited there in 1884.  In 1990 two thieves dressed as police stole 13 works of art including a Vermeer, and a Rembrandt.  The works have never been recovered and the empty frames still hang in place.

  I painted this piece in November of 2011. 
11x14 painted with acrylics on stretched canvas.
