Jelly Beans

Jelly Beans

My Mother always celebrated the holidays and usually that included a holiday centerpiece. At Easter she would place beautiful porcelain rabbits nestling in faux grass on the center of the dining room table. All five children received Easter baskets. There were malted eggs and speckled eggs and jelly beans and silly putty. And every year we would attend mass in our new dresses and gloves. When we were older, there would be an egg hunt in the back yard for my niece Elizabeth.

It's funny how you can see something as simple as a jelly bean and, for the moment, become lost in a world of happy childhood memories. Something just as simple as a jelly bean.

If you would like to purchase this 6" x 6" oil painting on stretched canvas, please email me. This painting is priced at $100.00 plus s/h.

Thank You!
