I’ve pointed out before that Stan and I love the look and feel of the Art Deco period. We collect many things from the period and it influences many things about our house and the furnishings.

These two landscape paintings have been sitting around for a bit with the under painting work done. I really wasn’t sure where I wanted to go to finalize them.
