We are slowly building our art collection and this was our first real piece. We bought this Charles Mayton painting from the David Lewis Gallery in New York. We love this piece and it looks beautiful over our dining room table (that my dad made) and chairs (that we made). See this post for how-to make the chairs from $25 Ikea frames (steal!).
The painting was described to me as a re-imagined still life. The artist pushed the boundaries with his use of the canvas, hanging the “plates” separately. It is fresh and modern and I love it.
