This is going to be a piece with meaningful things that surround me .
Our kitchen table is the best place to be at.
It's small but we all cuddle up around it and share simple lovingly made meals, talk , laugh , play games, work, enjoy each others company.
It has seen it all!!
After drawing it all on my huge panel I started blocking in and got my oils out.
I love my tables with bits and bobs and on this one you see a lot of Bloomsbury love if you watch closely.
There's a picture of my father too, a table bell of my mother. She collected them and had about 500 of them. When she passed I just kept the ceramic ones of which I love their naivety.
There are antique cups I got from my oldest friend, a beautiful dish from my parents in law, a flyer of an exhibition of Jan Sluijters etc etc. A broche I bought as a birthday gift for my mom when I was a kid.
There has to be cheese on our table and often we have Amarena cherries as many guests will know.
What's not to love! It's big too.
