Country Breakfast

“When you get into a tight place and it seems that you can’t go on, hold on — for that’s just the place and the time that the tide will turn.”
– Harriet Beecher Stowe

This is my own interpretation of a photo by Jakesgram at WetCanvas.  I had fun just keeping it loose and a little wavy.  Cast Iron is beautiful in it’s own right, but I just love color!  🙂

About Harriet Beecher Stowe

American author Harriet Beecher Stowe is known for her novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a rallying cry for the abolitionist movement. When she met Abe Lincoln in 1862, he said, “So you’re the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war!” She was born in Connecticut in 1811. Her brother, Henry Ward Beecher, became a renowned minister. After an unusually thorough education for a woman of the time, she began her career when she won a magazine prize contest. She died in 1896.

    Just made myself some fried eggs, fried potatoes, bacon, cottage cheese (a must with fried potatoes), and toast last night… Hmm, I wonder why I can’t lose weight. Great looking painting! I’m hungry now!

    First of all, I like that quote. I have a favorite that is similar taken from “Scent of a Woman” when Pacino said “When you get tangled up, just Tango on.” I tell myself that, usually at the point where my painting begins to tell me the direction it wants to go and I have to divorce myself from the reference and take a chance.
    I like the color you have brought out in this scene and the “homey” log cabin feel.
