When I want to see a snowy landscape, I'll rely on my "dead lady art" snow paintings for the remainder of winter.
First snowy scene was painted in 1984 by the mother of a girl who went to high school with The Husband. When we cleaned out his mother's house, I took it.
This was my first purchase and it inspired the "dead lady art" name. Essie Davis signed this painting, which is undated. It anchors my Christmas tableau in the fireplace every year.
As I see pretty paintings, I bring them home and they become part of my seasonal decorations. In the spring, this painting by Genie, dated 1977, will make its debut. I picked it up recently at an estate sale on 50% off day. It cost me $9! Isn't it pretty?
I also have a couple of fall paintings, but I was too lazy to unpack and photograph them today. I will show them to you next fall!
What do you think? Have you been collecting "dead lady art" and just didn't know it?
